Brisbane 2009 Registration

Online Payment

There are several levels of registration available to you, depending on whether you choose full conference participation or, if  local, only one- or two-day registrations.

One and two-day registrations do NOT include the cost of reception or banquet fees so these must be added as additional ticket choices as you register. 

Three days attendance or more should register using full week fees categories.

On-line registration for all categories and payment options for Brisbane 2009 delegates is available by following this link: OnLine Registration

PLEASE NOTE: This online registration system is for bonafide Conference Participants ONLY, i.e. those people coming to the conference and participating in the conference. If you are trying to register for the sole purpose of obtaining a Visa or Invite Letter to circumvent Australian immigration regulations, with no intention of participating, do NOT proceed further. Thank you.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

The ISSS makes every effort to keep the costs of the annual meeting as low as possible. Once a conference has been arranged there are fixed costs that the ISSS must pay, irrespective of the number of people attending the conference. For this reason, the ISSS cannot issue refunds outside the terms of its refund policy.

Refund Schedule
Prior to May 1 Refund minus $50 admin fee
May 1 to June 15 Refund of 50% of registration cost
June 15 to conference No refund

You should arrange appropriate travel or other insurance to cover any possibilities of loss through cancellation.

All requests for refunds must be submitted to

Changes to the category of registration will incur a $50 administration fee in addition to the new rate cost, to cover bank charges for refunds and administration.

If you are unable to attend, the registration can be transferred to another individual to take your place and that person may present your work.

If you do not attend the conference and have not transferred your place to another person, all conference materials and 2010 membership will be sent to you after the conference.
