Conference Fees

We intend to keep registration costs low and thereby give the most people
the opportunity to participate. We hope to be able to offer reduced fees
for students. The registration fee will be based on the number of
pre-registration forms received by year end. Therefore, all prospective
attendees are encouraged to return the pre-registration form as soon as
possible. Full registration, payment and post-conference pelagic trip
booking details will be made available by January 2008, when calls for
abstracts will also be made.
