Registration 

We’re pleased to invite you to register for the 29th WMS 2024 Annual Congress, available for both in-person and virtual participation. In-person delegates will automatically have access to the virtual platform.

Important: Prior registration is necessary before submitting an abstract. For abstracts with multiple authors, only the presenting author needs to complete the Conflict of Interest Declaration. Other authors on the same paper are not required to submit this declaration.

WMS 2024 sessions will be streamed from the Congress venue in Prague, and e-posters will also be shared virtually. Industry symposia will be available online and on demand. We have learned from the last few years and we are working hard to design an inclusive, engaging event for all our attendees.  

Access to the virtual platform will be provided to registered in-person and virtual participants. Most of the live-streamed sessions will be available online on the virtual platform for up to 3 months post-Congress and transferred to the WMS website thereafter, for WMS Members to access.


WMS Society Membership

If you want to benefit from Member discounts (see below), please make sure your Society 2024 Membership is active (and will be active for the duration of the Congress) before proceeding with your registration. You can do this by logging into your WMS account on the Society website here. You will not have the option to purchase or renew your membership during your Congress registration process above.  Your Congress registration type must match your Society Membership type.

Join us to make an impact.

Student Registrations
Open to medical students, trainee doctors pursuing primary specialities, PhD students, postdocs, MSc students, or equivalent roles. Delegates should have no direct interest/shares in pharmaceutical companies or be primarily employed by a profit-making organisation (less than 50% employment).

Non-member students need to provide a scan of a valid student ID and a letter from their course supervisor confirming their ongoing student project or status. This letter, ideally in English, should specify the student's status (Undergraduate, basic or medical student, Master's, PhD student, resident in training, or postdoc) and the duration of this status. If the letter is not in English, please underline important keywords. During registration, you'll upload these documents. For any clarification regarding your student status, contact Prof. Laurent Servais at [email protected].

Industry Registrations
Relevant for delegates in the Pharmaceutical and Industry sectors. By selecting this registration type, you are stating that you have direct interest/shares in a pharmaceutical company or are more than 50% employed by a profit-making organisation.

Please note that as with previous annual Congresses, member & non-member Industry registrations for WMS 2024 will be capped at 20% of the overall registrations available. Sponsor and Exhibitor package tickets are included in this 20%.

Non-WMS 2024 Sponsoring Companies can register up to a maximum of two attendees. It is the responsibility of each global organisation to manage their limit globally and to instruct their staff to use their business e-mail address when registering. If more than two people from the same company register, the additional registrations made after the first two will either be changed to virtual tickets or refunded, with a 20% administrative fee.

The purpose of this cap is to ensure that the Congress remains an open and welcoming forum where scientific and educational curiosity can flourish, the discussion is dynamic, and new collaboration networks are born.

To manage the 20% cap, the organisers have set registration limits per sponsorship item. It is the responsibility of each sponsoring organisation to manage their limit globally and to instruct their staff to use their business e-mail address when registering. If you can see your organisation is a confirmed sponsor on our sponsor’s page, but if you are not sure who the global coordinator is please contact the organisers.

Sponsorship tickets for HCPs do not require allocation from your quotas. These professionals should register as Non-Industry using their academic, or organisational email to undergo the standard vetting processes. If required, for sponsorship purposes, invoices can be amended for settlement on behalf of your organisation.

This year, there is no limit on Industry Virtual Tickets per global organisation. We will of course monitor and review the situation regularly to make sure that this Industry attendance opportunity across all ticket types is being used fairly, and by a wide selection of industry partners and attendees, rather than dominated by a select few.

WMS member/non-member registration (according to WMS Membership status) applies to delegates who:

Sponsor/Exhibitor Registrations
This year, the registration process for Exhibitors will be slightly different from how it has been in previous years. For WMS 2024, there will no longer be group registration for Exhibitors. This means that each person who will be attending will have to be registered individually by the group contact.

Sponsor/Exhibitor tickets provide the same level of access to Congress sessions and virtual platform features as delegate Congress tickets.

Agency Registrations / Registering on behalf of someone else
Group registrations are no longer available; each individual needs to be registered separately. However, agencies can assist by completing and submitting registrations on behalf of attendees. During registration, you can indicate if you're registering on behalf of someone else and provide your agency's name. The process remains simple and familiar. You can still pay for the person you're registering. If your agency cannot cover costs for networking dinners, receptions, or group activities, you can indicate this during registration. We'll then share a link via the confirmation email for individuals to select and pay for these costs themselves. 

Italian Registrations
