A Swedish lesson for registration: "total kostnad" means "total cost", and "boka" means "register now!"

We aim for an even gender representation and for a mix of backgrounds: activists, academics, medical professionals, journalists and more. We also welcome offers of partnership and support from like-minded organisations.
We've got all the speakers we can fit into the programme, and we're putting the schedule together. One priority we have is to give ample opportunity for socialising among the attendees and the speakers. This worked very well at the World Skeptics Conference in Berlin last year, and not so well at a few other conferences we've attended in recent years. So we're aiming for a balance where everybody gets their money's worth in programming, but also generous time to talk to people.
VIP seating, where you're on the first row with the speakers, is selling out fast!
Our bank issues have now been sorted out. Welcome to register, everybody!
Registration opens Thursday 21 March 11:00 GMT (London) = 07:00 EDT (New York) = 12:00 Swedish time.
To make it achievable for as many as possible to come to ESC-2013 there are three different ways to register for the full three days of the congress and it is also possible to get single day admission. The prices are in Swedish crowns and what this is in other currencies will vary over time. The different categorise have individual limits on the number of people that can register.
