Read on to discover what awaits you.    

Register by March 31 to benefit from early bird Congress rates, cheaper flights and more hotel options.


Connect with your association
Whether you will come as an attendee or as a presenter, Congress is the perfect place to connect with your association, network with your peers and share your latest research. Find out if your association is attending and view your conference program. 

Broaden your horizons
In addition to your association, over 70 others are also holding their conference under the Congress umbrella. Many choose to open some of their sessions to a wider audience: this is your chance to make the most of Congress, network and learn about other fields! Find out what you can attend.

Attend unique events
You'd be surprised by how much is going on at Congress beyond association conferences! Discover the much-anticipated Big Thinking lectures, join one of the Career Corner workshops, stroll through Expo or attend the university's interdisciplinary symposia. New programming will be added daily.

Talk to the media
Last year at Congress 2015, 239 media stories were published in over 90 different print, online, radio and TV outlets, featuring not only Congress as a whole, but also numerous individual researchers. Congress could be a springboard for your career! More information will be communicated after registration.
