Delegates are responsible for arranging and paying for their own travel and accommodation separately.

Please note that Virtual Conference registration only includes the session recordings and live streams (if possible). We will not be delivering your meals or snacks ;-) Presenters using this option will use Skype to deliver their talks.

The last day to register for the regular conference is June 25th, 2017 - online registration for the regular conference is now closed. You can register in-person when you arrive. You may still register online for the virtual conference - see below.


Registration Fees

The following table shows the registration fees in each category. Registration fees are in British pounds. They do NOT include IECA membership.

There are discounts for IECA members as well as for FULL-TIME students at any level and for RESIDENTS of Lower Income Countries (LIC). Those registering as students may be asked for documentation of their full-time status. After you pay for registration, The IECA will check registration categories against membership history, and student and residency status to ensure you have registered in the correct category. Please be careful about this and help us avoid extra administrative costs.
