Registration Guidelines

ISM 2021 goes hybrid. Both in-person and virtual participation options will be available to give people from all over the world the possibility to attend the conference. Everyone willing to participate to ISM 2021 (including authors or just observers) must register and use the procedure outlined below.

Due to the challenges that the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is still posing on the global society, the different speed at which countries around the world are adopting countermeasures, vaccination programs, and mitigation strategies, and the general climate of uncertainty about the possibility to travel in the next few months, we strongly recommend prospective participants to follow these tips:

  • If you do not have particular travel restrictions or personal limitations, we currently recommend to register for the in-person event. In fact, if it will no longer feasible to run a face to face congress in the next few months and the conference will be switched to a fully virtual event, the ISM 2021 Organizing Committee will refund the difference between the in-person and the virtual participation fee.
  • We are aware of the general climate of uncertainty about the possibility to travel in the next months. If you do not feel confident yet about participating in person, feel also free to register and pay the virtual registration fee now. If in the next weeks you will decide to come in person, you will be able to upgrade your ticket to ISM 2021 from a virtual to an in-person participation by paying the difference.
Do you have an accepted paper at ISM 2021? For each accepted regular paper or short paper, one author – or someone on behalf of the author(s) – must register the paper and pay the registration fee according to the guidelines here reported. Please note that the person completing the payment may be different from the actual speaker at the conference. The paper registration fee covers one (1) accepted paper. In case of two or more papers or papers exceeding the page number limit, please check the fees below. Please, note that the inclusion of the paper in the conference program and the publication of the paper in the conference proceedings is subject to the payment of the paper registration fee and each paper must be presented at the conference. Acknowledgment of registration will be sent after receiving your payment. The category (early/late) of the registration fees is determined by the date the payment is made, not the date of registration. Registrants should start the procedure as early as possible to allow for sufficient time to process the registration. If you need a certificate for your procedures, please contact ism2021@msc-les.org.
