Congress registration fees are divided into regular, life and student fees. Life fees are available only for ISA Life Members. Students (PhD students included) must provide a copy of a valid student card or equivalent; student registration fee depends on the country where the student pursues his/her studies in the current year.

There are different fees available for ISA Members and Non-Members. ISA Members are scholars who have paid their individual membership fees for the current year. To join the ISA, see Individual Membership.

Registration fees have been divided into three categories: A, B, and C. Each participant must identify the category in which her/his country of residence is classified and pay the registration fee corresponding to this category. The table of countries can be found here.

All programme participants (paper givers, session organizers, chairs, discussants, etc.) must pay a full registration fee before March 22, 2023. For a co-authored paper, at least one co-author must pay the congress registration fee by the deadline March 22, 2023.

Daily registration of USD 150 will be available for purchase at the registration desk in Melbourne.

Registration fees are the same for in-person and online presentations and cover participation in all types of sessions.
It will be possible to change from in-person to online presentation (and vice versa) until four weeks before the start of Congress.
