Registration Process

We try to make your registration process as smooth as possible. This means you need to register only once for your abstract or paper submission and the congress itself. We are using “ConfTool” as Registration, Abstract and Paper Management System.

In view of the current coronavirus situation the IMWA 2020 organising committee are assessing the risk of COVID19 to the IMWA 2020 Congress. We have a watching brief on the regulations that are implemented by the NZ government. Click for more information.

How to register in ConfTool

Registration for Congress Participation

To register as a congress participant, you need an account in the IMWA 2020 Congress Management system called “ConfTool”. The account allows you to access registration details and payment information at any time after registration. You can also use your account to print out the registration confirmation and your invoice.

Create a New ConfTool Account

If you have not obtained a ConfTool account for this congress before, you need to create a new account. As an author, member of the program committee, or reviewer for this event, you will most likely hold a ConfTool account already. Please use your existing account for registration as a participant.

To create a new account select the link on the login page and follow the instructions given there. Please enter your full name and address, and provide a valid e-mail address, since these details are required to contact you, for name badges, invoices, and receipts.

Log-in to the ConfTool System

If you already hold an account, log-in with your user name or e-mail address and password. If you have forgotten your user name or password, please follow the links next to the according input fields and consider our hints for user registration and log-in.

The Participant Registration Process

To start the registration process, please click on “Registration for congress participation” at the bottom of your “Show User Account Details” page of your ConfTool account. The registration process consists of several steps:

First, please state your participant status (Regular Delegate, IMWA Member, Student / Ph.D. Student, Accompanying Person). Some statuses require entering a valid code to continue the registration process (e.g. a student ID number or your IMWA membership number). If you have any questions, please contact us by e-mail.

Now, select (sub)events and other items you want to book for this congress. The prices depend on your registration status and the time of registration (we offer a reduction during the “early bird” phase). Click the green “Update Prices” button before you proceed.

Please enter your payment details now. Only the payment modes listed there can be accepted. If none of the offered methods is suitable for you, please contact the IMWA 2020 Conference Organizer (

Finally, confirm your entries and the registration terms for participants. Please note that your registration for participation is binding and the full fee has to be paid within the given period.

After completing the registration, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with the required payment details. The “Confirmation of Registration” and/or “Invoice” can now be accessed from your IMWA 2020 account and be printed via your browser’s print function. After your payment has been received, you will get access to the invoice from your account.

If you need a payment receipt, please contact us. We will make it available to you at the congress registration desk.
