World Congress: on-line registration now open

Plenary and workshop presentations

Abstract submission for the 7th World Congress on Conductive Education is now closed, with some two-hundred abstracts received from more than eighteen countries or regions. Selection for the final programme should now be complete and winners and losers of this process will be hearing very soon.

Early-bird registration

Meanwhile, early-bird registration is open until 31 July.

For those unfamiliar with conference terminology, this means that those who register for the conference before that date will pay a reduced fee.

In the case of the Hong Kong Congress, for participants from outside China (including Hong Kong and Macao) and Taiwan, the registration until 31 July will be US$ 325 until 31 July, and US$ 375 thereafter. Part-attendance for part-fees is possible and there is a considerably reduced fee or bona fide students.

Other costs

The registration fee covers the basic cost of attending the Congress itself.

Accommodation is extra. The Congress has arranged special deals on two rather nice hotels, convenient to the Congress venue. Participants are of course to arrange themselves something humbler – or flasher – according to their personal taste and means.

There is a range of extras should you wish them, social events, pre- and post congress 'workshops' and a range of post-congress visits and trips, at extra cost of course.

Registration

Register on line or download a form to complete on paper and return by post, in the good old-fashioned way, all at:


You will find a lot more details here too, including on ways in which you can pay.

Complicated?

Er, yes. Such things are. This one is par for the course.

If you get confused, contact the most helpful Congress Secretariat:


What might you be buying?

There is far more to attending such conferences than just the formal proceedings, but these are important too!

With the the selection and balancing of the submissions complete, the organisers can proceed to preliminary publication of the full programme. Watch out for announcement of this on Conductive World in the near future.

Meanwhile, introductions to the plenary presentations, and to the pre- and post-congress workshop programmes, are already published:

  1. Have you heard anything more Andrew about the hinted at pre-congress social network for those attending?

  2. Not a peep, but it is surely time to be starting it up about now, not just to help round up punters but also to allow everyone, including the organisers, to act upon things in response to what emerges out of such a forum.

    It will be interesting to see whether thisis fixed-focus forum does better than others in CE at attracting contributions!

    Andrew.
