REGISTRATION INFORMATION


We encourage you to join ISHPSSB or update your membership before registering to the conference to benefit from the discounted rates for members. You may do so through the ISHPSSB membership page (https://ishpssb.org/membership/).

Students and post-doctoral fellows will be required, in addition, to show proof of their status at the Conference registration desk (e.g. student card or proof of academic enrolment); post-doctoral fellows will need to show an endorsement by the fellow's hosting institution.

Persons who just wish to attend some sessions without taking an active part in the program (that is to say persons who do not present a paper or a poster, nor participate in organized sessions, but simply wish to listen to some communications) can register as “Visitors”. This status grants access to the conference rooms as well as to the coffee breaks.

Registration includes the Welcome reception and a conference package, and of course gives access to the conference rooms and coffee breaks.

Hard copies of the book of abstracts will be available on site, at a price of NOK 204. Participants can pre-order the book using the online system at a price of NOK 102.

The ISHPSSB 2019 registration system is now open. Please follow this link: https://tekniskmuseum.hoopla.no/sales/ishpssb2019  to register.
