Important dates

Pre-registration will open on 1 December 2018

General registration will open in April 2019


Registration for PME 43 will be carried out online using the ConfTool conference registration system. If you have been a PME member in the past, but will not be attending PME 43, or you want to become a new PME member who will not attend PME 43, you pay the annual membership fee for PME through ConfTool. This is necessary for maintaining or getting membership. The ConfTool link for registration and submissions is


Registration fees

The total registration fee will be in the order of 460 Euro.

Pre-registration fee is ZAR2000 (about 130 Euros)

The total registration fee includes:

  •     PME membership for the year 2019 of 50 Euro
  •     A compulsory Skemp Fund donation of 10 Euro
  •     A set of printed conference proceedings and access to an electronic version of the proceedings;
  •     Lunches and coffee breaks during the conference;
  •     Social events (Welcome reception, Conference dinner & Excursion); and
  •     The costs of venue, administrative work, and facilities needed for the organization of the conference.

Participants can choose an alternative option that includes only electronic proceedings. If you choose electronic proceedings only, the registration fee will be reduced.

Support from the Skemp Fund

Through the Richard Skemp Memorial Fund, IGPME can offer some support to scientists from countries that are usually underrepresented in PME conferences, if they cannot get sufficient funding from other sources. Read more here about support from the Skemp Fund and the application form.

The deadline for application to the Skemp fund, however, has now passed.

Accompanying persons

We welcome accompanying persons. Accompanying persons participate in the social program but not in the scientific program of the conference. The fee for accompanying persons is expected to be around 130 Euro per person depending on the anticipated number of participants and external financial support. The exact amount will be decided by the Local Organising Committee in April 2018, just prior to the publication of the Second Announcement.

The fee covers:

  •     Opening reception;
  •     Excursion;
  •     Conference dinner; and
  •     Some of the administrative work involved outside of the scientific programme.

There is no fee for accompanying children 13 years of age or less.
