Good day and Happy New Year 2024. This is a reminder for registration before the end of the early-bird period next Monday on Jan 15, 2024. Fees after the early-bird period are subjected to an upward adjustment.

To address some of the questions received from applicants, here are some important reminders:

  1. Registration is only complete when you have paid the registration fee, and completed the registration form on the ARWA website. Payment of registration fee alone does not complete the registration process.

  2. For this year, payment of membership dues (e.g. Regular Membership (2024), Student Membership (2024)) is a prerequisite for purchasing members-only registration plans (plans ending with 2024M, which are discounted). Paying the membership dues alone also does not complete the registration process.

  3. If you have paid for the members-only registration fees without also paying the 2024 membership dues, said registration would only be active, once you also pay the membership dues.

  4. If you do not wish to become a member but still wish to register, please select and purchase the registration plans under Payment -> Registration Fees (For Non-Members).

If you have not completed your registration according to above, you are encouraged to do so before Jan 15 to enjoy the early-bird discount. If you encounter any issues paying or accessing the registration forms, please contact Dr. Vince Ngan at

Thank you for your attention, and hope to see you at the conference!
