We urge interested participants to


as early as possible, for planning the Symposium more efficiently.

Pre-registration is important as it will add your record to our database (for Book of Abstracts, Name Tags, etc.)

Pre-registration does not require an immediate payment; however, to take advantage of the Early Registration Fee you must pay before the deadline (see the table below). Registration is not considered complete until the registration fee is received.

The Registration Fee applies to the Symposium sessions and workshops. Registration is not considered complete until the Registration Fee is received. In order to take advantage of the early registration fee rate, payment must be made before the end of the Early Registration period.

Please note that your registration fee COVERS coffee breaks, attendance at all sessions and pre-Symposium workshops, welcome reception, poster reception and the Symposium Banquet.

For those who previously registered for MSEAS-2020, please contact to arrange payment.
The registration fee has increased for MSEAS-2024 due to the overall increase in costs over four years and because a change of venue was necessary. If you paid your registration fee for MSEAS 2020 and did not ask for a refund by the due date, you will be requested to pay the balance. Sorry for this inconvenience but we hope you understand these circumstances are outside of our control.
