Further Information

Reduced fees are offered for students, unwaged, and retired scholars (proof of status is required), exhibitors, members of the IMS, and those attending for one day only. For proof of status we require a copy of a current student card, or official state documentation showing that you are retired or unwaged. Alternatively, if you are retired, you can send us a copy of your passport showing clearly your date of birth, or a letter from your former employer stating your date of retirement. All letters should be on official letterhead. Proofs can be posted or faxed to us using the IMC contact address below. Note: Emails cannot be accepted as proof of status.

Non-Online registrations:
a) Manually inputting and acknowledging the details on your registration form.

Refunds will not be made under any circumstances for cancellations received on or after 24 June 2012.
