For those who will not attend EMTS 2013 but are interested in participating in the School, limited number of tickets are available on site; please come to the symposium site and pay the School Registration Fee at the School Registration Desk located on the different floor from the EMTS 2013 Registration Desk.

There are five main steps for the EMTS 2013 Pre-Registration procedure:
1) Creating a Registration Key (on-line) (see "9" below)
2) Selecting Registration Category (on-line) (see "2," "3," and "4" above)
3) Entering Registrant's Information (on-line)
4) Completing Payment (on-line) (see "13" below)
5) Receiving Entrance Ticket (by post) (see "14" below)
A "Registration Key"
will be created for you and sent to you by email, which will be used to start your Pre-Registration for EMTS 2013.
Every time you make a payment for items and services provided by EMTS 2013 such as "pre-registration", "extra paper presentations", or "extra banquet tickets", you should create a new Registration Key.
Identical email address could be used for creating two or more Registration Keys.
Please note that, if the e-mail address has some kind of settings such
as spam filter or e-mail block security system, messages from the EMTS
2013 Pre-Registration System might not reach you.
Please be sure to use an e-mail address that has no such settings.
Accompanying Persons should be the registrant's family or relative, such as his/her spouse (husband or wife), sibling (brother or sister), child, etc., who will not intend to attend the symposium sessions (including the "School for Young Scientists" on May 20, 2013), but will participate in the symposium official events such as the "Welcome Reception" (free of charge) or "Banquet" (5,000 or 6,000 Japanese yen per person; see "11" below) or excursion tours and trips provided by the travel agent.
Please note that an accompanying person will not be provided with a copy of the Symposium Proceedings. Those who are interested in participating in the symposium sessions should register individually.
Each registrant can register up to 5 accompanying persons in the Pre-Registration
Form. In case there are more than 5, please enter their names and other
information in the "Memo" box at the bottom of the form.
The EMTS 2013 Banquet will be held at "ANA Crowne Plaza Hiroshima" from 19:00 on Wednesday, May 22, 2013.
Each one of the participants for this event is required to buy a Banquet Ticket, except children under the age of 12. For those who wish to attend the Banquet, pre-registration is recommended because the number of banquet tickets available on-site is limited.

If you have difficulty in paying by credit card, you can select another way, "Bank Transfer", by clicking the button in the Pre-Registration Form. Payment by bank transfer must be completed within 10 days from the registration date. If we find the payment not completed by then, the registration will become invalid.
For On-Site Registration, the payment should be done in cash (JPY only), or by credit card.
