Delegate Registration Process

Use this link to register as a delegate for WCDP 2023:

WCDP 2023 Delegate Registration

When you first open the link it will prompt you to create your own Oxford Abstract Account (Oxford Abstracts is the Conference Management Software that we are using for WCDP 2023 including the registration of delegates) so that you can follow the Registration process. It is very straightforward to do this, but if you need any guidance a short guide has been produced: Creating an Account with Oxford Abstracts and logging in (pdf).

Once you have created your account the Delegate Registration Form will open, and you can then proceed to register yourself as a Delegate for WCDP 2023.

A summary of the different Delegate Registration periods and Registration Rates is provided below. Ensure that you select the correct registration category. There is also a voluntary Crowd Funding option available if you wish to support colleagues from Developing Nations/Low and Middle Income Countries.

You will be prompted to upload a photograph of yourself which will be used for your name tag at the conference.

When you are ready, submit your registration. A summary will appear with two options for payment. You can either pay by a Bank Transfer or by PayPal. Click on the relevant icon to proceed. Download your invoice for the full terms of payment by Bank Transfer and the relevant bank detail information, and note that the delegate must cover all bank transfer fees, both their own and that of the RLSSA account. Payments for all fees are also possible using PayPal as the Payment Gateway. However, if you do not have a PayPal account, the payment portal will allow you to pay using a Credit or Debit card.

If paying by Bank Transfer, note that payments must be received within 7 days on all invoices raised up to 23 November 2023. After that date and up to 30 November 2023, all Bank Transfer payments must be made immediately. Note that all fees are being charged in Australian Dollars (AUD) and are inclusive of 10% Goods Service Tax.

When you have registered as a delegate, you will be able to view the status of your registration at any time by simply logging in and accessing your Oxford Abstract Account. This will enable you to download an invoice/receipt for your payment for your records.

If you have received a receipt e-mail from PayPal, please do not pay again. Please contact if the link to download your invoice/receipt does not appear.
