Registration Process


When you click on the Registration Link you will be taken to a Registration Page where you will be asked to create a profile, or to login to your existing profile. The first step is to record your personal details on your own ‘dashboard’. If you have already completed it from 2011, you will not have to repeat this, just login to your ‘dashboard’.

As you complete any section of the ‘dashboard’, you will receive a confirmation email.

You can use your email and password to access your registration at any time to make any necessary changes, coming back to it over a period of time as you are ready to confirm more detail.

Registration Payment

A secure site is provided for online payment of your charges. This has its own section on the ‘dashboard’. The payment options are:

  • Credit card - Visa or Mastercard or Amex (additional fees apply)​
  • Payments by MasterCard and Visa attract a 1.10% surcharge, which will be automatically added to your payment prior to processing.
  • Payments by AMEX attract a 3.30% surcharge, which will be automatically added to your payment prior to processing.

An Australian Tax Invoice will be provided for all registrants once registered. You can reprint this and your receipt from your ‘dashboard’ at any time. 

The ABN for the conference is 90 093 246 176. All rates quoted include GST and are in Australian dollars. 
All online registrations are checked by the secretariat. If there is any query they will contact you. If you wish to make changes or additions after you have registered, return to your ‘dashboard’.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations will incur a "cancellation fee" of AUD $100 if made in writing 30 days before the event begins. No refund is payable after that date but registrations can be transferred to substitute delegates without penalty. 


The Registration fee does not include insurance of any kind and the Meeting Secretariat cannot take any responsibility for any participant failing to arrange their own insurance. Delegates are encouraged to make their own insurance arrangements to cover any loss caused by unforeseen delay, circumstance or cancellation.
