*Discount tickets 
Discounts are based on self-assessment. The aim of the discounted option is to support attendance from those unable to participate under the full fee.

Examples of former discount holders are students, precarious/short contracts, those representing an organisation in a low or middle income country, and retired and unemployed people. If you fit one of these categories yet avail of resources to back up your participation, you are kindly requested to forfeit the discount.

How do we decide the fee? 
As our conferences always take place in different geographic locations, our costs vary depending on the location and the host. This makes it that our conference prices are never the same each year. This is a non-profit event.
