ECRM Registration

Please read the ECRM Registration page carefully before clicking on the Register Now button which will take you to our shop.

We are hoping to be able to meet in person for a physical conference in Aveiro, Portugal in June 2021. We know however that events over the past 12 months have had a longer lasting impact on participants ability and willingness to travel. Therefore, we are planning for ECRM 2021 to be a “hybrid” conference. This means that we plan to hold a physical conference with virtual elements built into it, with the aim of creating an experience for both those who are able to attend in person and for those who will attend online. You will find options below to register to attend the event either in person or online. Should we have to cancel the physical conference we will offer you the difference as a credit or refund.

The system will calculate the group discount automatically once you have selected more than 3 registrations.

    Earlybird fees must reach us no later than 08 April 2021 To ensure publication of papers, author payments must reach us no later than 13 May 2021. Registrations can still be made after this date, provided payment is received by credit/debit card at the time of booking.

    Earlybird Conditions

    In order to obtain the Earlybird rate, we must be in receipt of your full conference registration fee by the published Earlybird date.
