The WSC2018 (11 to 14 June) will consist of four days of conference style talks, followed by ISBW13 (15 to 17 June), which will comprise three days of workshops. Registration fees for WSC2018 will cover the field trip, conference dinner, some meals (lunch and tea), and all oral and poster presentation sessions. To keep the workshops effective and productive, we will be limiting participant numbers for ISBW13. We highly encourage interested participants to sign up as soon as possible to secure a space.

You do not have to be a member to attend the WSC2018 and/or ISBW13. However, World Seagrass Association (WSA) members receive a discounted registration rate, which more than covers the cost of membership. Join or renew now! If you intend to join the WSA or renew your membership to take advantage of the discounted rates, please remember do so before registering for WSC2018/ISBW13.

There will also be discounted rates for students, non-students from developing nations and early-bird registrations for both events. Early-bird registration closes on 20 April 2018 (extended deadline). Please ensure you have a Mastercard, Amex or Visa credit card prior to registering to make payment through our secure portal.

At present, only WSC2018 attendees can participate in ISBW13. In addition, do note that the WSC2018 and ISBW13 have separate registration fees, so if you wish to attend both events, you will need to pay both registration fees. E.g. A student attending both WSC2018 and ISBW13 will pay $500 before 15 April 2018, and $600 after 15 April 2018.

We have also begun accepting virtual attendance/presentation for WSC2018! This option is mainly catered towards presenters, who will pre-record their oral presentations, but will be able to interact with the audience for a LIVE Q&A session. Alternatively, for poster presenters, we will print out your poster and display it for you for the four days of WSC2018.
