How will registration work?

Registration is a 5 step process:

  1. Enter your personal details (name, address, email, etc).
  2. Select your conference registration type (Student, Corporate, etc).
  3. Optionally select any tutorials, t-shirts, etc
  4. Submit your payment (via credit card, Paypal, cheque).
  5. Receive your confirmation email from PGCon.

You will get two emails from PGCon. The first email indicates that your registration information has been received (it should arrive almost immediately after you complete step 3). The second will arrive after we have received notification of your payment (usually with 48 hours). NOTE: it is not unusual for us to wait until a couple of weeks before the conference to start sending out confirmations. Your registration process is not completed until you receive the confirmation email from PGCon that indicates everything has been paid in full (i.e. the second email).

NOTE: if you are paying by cheque, it may take 5-14 days to process your payment. Your second email will not arrive until after your cheque has cleared.

Registering multiple people

If you wish to register multiple people:

  • Register each person separately
  • Make one payment
  • Forward the payment confirmation email to and list the names of the people you are paying for

This will help us distribute your payment against each person. If you happen to make multiple payments, forwarding a list of names will also help us follow the trail. Thank you.

  • Payment by credit card or Paypal
