We tried to make your registration process as smooth as possible. This means you need to register only once for your abstract or paper submission and the congress itself. We are using ConfTool and we hope you will find the registration process smooth.

Early Bird

Early Bird registration ends on February 24, 2017.


Regular registration fees start to be applied on February 25, 2017.


Student fees apply (also for PhD-level), if you are not older than 30 years and have registered as present at your university.


A paperless registration means that you will get only a name-tag. Everywhere in the Congress Venue, you will find QR-tags, which you can scan with your smartphone or your own tablet. You can rent a tablet if you prefer not to bring your own devices.

What is included?

Registration Fee includes attendance for the whole 13th IMWA Congress, all tea, coffee, snacks and lunches and attendance at the Opening Ceremony. Each registered delegate will receive an electronic version of the Congress proceedings unless printed proceedings are selected for purchase. IMWA members will receive a reduction in Congress fees and Early Bird Registrants (prior to February 24, 2017) will have their names entered into a draw for a prize. Congress fees are payable in Euros. Day Registration does not include a free participation in the Mid Congress Excursion unless you register for June 28th 2017 as well.

*Tekes Theme

Free participation in the Tekes Theme. Registration allows attending the Tekes Theme presentations on Monday, June 26. It does not include lunch nor conference proceedings. Lunch and coffee package available for € 25.

Payment Types

You can pay using one of the following payment options:

  •     Credit Card
  •     Money Transfer (only in European SEPA countries)
  •     Bank Transfer (non-European and non-SEPA countries)

You will only get access to the Congress if you paid your Congress Fees in full.

Please transfer only Euros to our European account. Do not transfer US Dollars or any other currency, as this will result in high exchange fees!

When you are living in a non-EU country or a country that does not participate in the SEPA system, please make sure that your bank charges you ALL fees, including those of our bank! For the specialist: this means fees resulting from this transfer must be processed using the “OUR” SWIFT standard in SWIFT field 71A: “Remitter pays all fees”. You can find more information here.
