We invite potential participants to register and to submit abstracts to be considered for oral and poster presentations at the Symposium. Registration will be finalised on payment of the registration fee (see Deadlines) but we encourage early registration to allow us to assess the numbers of participants.
If you wish to attend only one day please contact the organisers.
Full time, non-salaried, registered students who are presenting may be eligible for a reduced registration fee.
Information about payment can be found here. The fees are R 4500 for payments made by 31st August 2016 and R 6000 for payments from 1st September 2016. Payment must be made in full before the conference. Payment is a separate process from registration.
If you intend to present either an oral or a poster you need to submit an abstract for it to be considered. However, we cannot guarantee to accommodate all requests for orals. You will be notified by 15 August whether your presentation has been accepted and whether it will be an oral or poster presentation.
