The 'Early-bird' deadline for registration is 16 March 2015. After 16 March, the registration fee will be as indicated in the table below. A late registration surcharge of 80 € will be added after 31 May 2015.

The fees include the icebreaker, the symposium banquet, lunch (Mon–Fri), daily morning/afternoon coffee, minibus service between the symposium venue and the various accommodation sites, and the mid-week excursion. Because of the limited size of the Hotel Lindarbakki conference room (130 seats), late registrations might not be accepted. The fees for non-members include online membership of the IGS for 2015.

The reserved accommodation and the main conference room will take up to maximum of 130 participants, so book early in order that the organizers can best manage the event. Registration will be closed when the number of registered participants reaches the maximum even if this happens before the registration deadline. Participants that have preregistered their interest in the symposium on the IGS web have precedence over others.
