Registration Category

Member

Members must have paid 2024 dues to receive member pricing. Nonmember full conference registrations include a complimentary SME membership that will remain active until December 31, 2025. Discounted non-member registrations that include, but are not limited to, Discounted Author Rates and Complimentary Sponsor/Exhibitor Registrations do not include complimentary memberships.

STUDENT

Student registration for IMPC 2024 must meet eligibility requirements. SME requires that an individual must be attending a college/university/ higher education institute on a full-time basis to qualify for student registration rates. Student registrants may be required to provide evidence that you are a full-time student. Students enrolled in 12 or more semester credit hours are considered full-time. Acceptable confirmation includes: transcript, most recent report card, or official school registration documents. Student registrations without this documentation upon request will not be eligible for the reduced student rate.

SPOUSE/COMPANION PROGRAM

This reduced rate is intended for those traveling with registered conference attendees and who are not involved in the mining industry in any aspect. This registration includes admission to the Sunday’s reception, Monday’s Exhibit Hall Reception, Tuesday’s Cultural Event Reception and Wednesday’s Awards Banquet. This registration does not include access to technical sessions, Exhibit Hall lunches and does not include ticketed events – those must be purchased separately. SME reserves the right to cancel, without notice, a spouse/companion registration suspected to be for a professional and/or exhibitor.
