    Further information

    There is no conference registration fee for presenters. Non-presenting participants are subject to pay a conference registration fee of 130 Euro. All participants will be offered lunches and refreshments during the conference and a conference dinner.

    The International Microsimulation Association is a not for profit organisation that uses funding from conferences to pay for the journal, website and other associated administrative costs. If you have some research money to fund your conference attendance, a voluntary contribution can be made (additionally) to the IMA, and we can arrange an invoice with bank account details if required. This is a voluntary contribution, with the amount being what you and your Institution can afford. A typical contribution would be 50 - 100 Euro per person. More information on how to contribute will be available closer to the conference.

    We plan to organise the conference as an in-person event in accordance with national "Corona rules" (fully vaccinated, recovered or a recent negative test). The event may also take on the form of an online conference depending on the covid-related conditions.
