The EUSPR is a not-for-profit organisation. Conference fees are used to cover the costs of convening the conference, and any surplus is used for administrative activities in the following year. Fees reflect the relative cost of holding a conference in the host city and have been kept at a minimum in order to encourage attendance from a wide variety of countries and professional backgrounds.
Joint Conference and EUSPR Membership
All registration fees will include free EUSPR membership for 2019, and there is also the option to join or renew your membership for 2018 as well when you register for the conference (if you have not done so already). Please note that you will still have to fulfill membership eligibility criteria.
Please identify the correct fee level here (i.e Level A,B,C etc.) before ordering your conference ticket, as price is based upon your country of employment, and/or student or retiree/senior status.
The main conference is held between 24– 26 October 2018. Pre-conference events take place on the 24 October. The formal conference opening will take place at Lisbon City Hall at 1730 on 24 October

Please allow plenty of time to request a letter to support your visa application. NB we adhere to international good practice with respect to visas in supporting colleagues to attend scientific conferences. Unfortunately, in keeping with most international conference organisers, we do get some fraudulent requests for support each year. Therefore, we hope that you understand that we will only provide a letter of support that accurately describes your particpation. For example, we will state that your work has been accepted for a parallel session or that you have registered and paid your fees, but we will not write that we have specifically invited you to attend or present as that is only reserved for our keynote plenary speakers. Please also note that we will take our own steps to ascertain your prevention credentials.
If you need a travel visa to Portugal, we will be happy to issue an invitation letter to support your visa application, in accordance with good practice outlined above.
Invitation letters will only be issued once your registration and payment have been completed.
Invitation letters will be sent by e-mail.
In order to request an invitation letter, just e-mail us with the following information:
- a good-quality scan of your passport (.pdf or image format)
- surname/family name and given names, exactly as they appear in your passport
- contacts: e-mail, phone number
- affiliation/organisation: name, address, country, the position you hold/occupy, website
- any additional information you may think is relevant to your application
Please contact us if you need to cancel your registration.
- We cannot refund any bank charges incurred by any payments or refunds.
- Requests received by 17th October 2018 will be refunded in full (registration fee and Eventbrite fees).
- Requests received after 17th October 2018 will be refunded only in exceptional circumstances.
*** IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT BANK CHARGES: In some cases banks may deduct a transfer fee from the instructed amount, for example if your account is not in Euro or if your country is not part of the EU. Please consider these charges when initiating a bank transfer to ensure that the correct amount enters our bank account. Therefore, if your bank account is not in Euro or if your country is not part of the EU (or you have any other reason to believe that bank charges may occur), please contact your bank to find out about applicable charges. Please note that your application will not be processed unless the correct amount is received in the Society bank account.***
