Determine your Registration Category

There are four main categories of Registrants and two sub-categories.

  1. Student Members and Non-Members must be enrolled at an accredited university as a full-time student as either and undergraduate or graduate student at the time of the conference to qualify for student discounted rates. Proof of enrollment will be required.
  2. Developing Country attendees must be citizens of a “low-income” or “lower-middle income” country as defined by the World Bank in 2015. Proof of eligibility will be required. A list of eligible countries may be viewed here.
  3. Members are all registrants who do not qualify for either discounted category above. Non-members should choose this option and join the Society when registering for the conference. Membership is $50 and members receive a $50 discount on conference registration.
  4. Non-Members and Government includes all persons who do not wish to include a membership with their registration. (Please note that the cost of an annual membership in ISDS is fully offset by discounted registration rates.)
