Registration FAQ


I am having trouble getting started with the online registration.

Please visit the IHW 2018 registration webpage:

Click on the “Register Now” button. Click on "New Registration", and continue your registration on the next page. Instructions on the top of each page will guide you through the process.


I cannot find my Registration Confirmation email.

Everyone gets sent a Registration Confirmation email automatically after they have completed their registration. It serves as your official invoice, and was emailed to the address you used when registering. If you entered an Alternate Email address, it should be sent there as well. Confirmation emails may filter into your spam/junk folder, so please check there before contacting Conference Solutions to have your confirmation email re-sent. If you still cannot locate your email, please email


What is included in the conference registration fee?

Workshop registration includes:

  • Name badge and entry to all satellites, symposia, workshops and poster sessions.
  • Printed IHW abstract book and certificate of attendance (available on last page of book).
  • Electronic PDFs of the abstract book, attendee roster, and certificate of attendance.

Can I just attend one day of the workshop?

Unfortunately, one-day registrations are not available for this workshop.


Where can I find my reference number?

The reference number can be found in your Registration Confirmation email.


What is the substitution policy?

Payment of a $50 USD administrative fee enables you to transfer your registration to another person, simply by emailing Substitutions will be transferred at the same rate as the original registration. Substitutions can be made at any time.


I need to cancel my registration. What is the cancellation policy?

We understand that events may occur that prevent you from attending the conference. We are happy to accommodate a refund for your purchase if you are unable to find a substitute prior to the deadline. Cancellation requests must be made in writing by emailing Cancellations received by 29 June, 2018 will be refunded, less a $175 USD administrative fee.
