Q & A
Q1: I am planning to give an oral or poster presentation. Although I am not a member of the Japanese Society of Limnology (JSL), my supervisor (co-author) is a JSL member. Do I still need to become a JSL member?
A1: As stated in the Form B, the presenter must become a member of the Japanese Society of Limnology and the membership fee paid by 21 October 2016 (two weeks before the congress). Note that if the office has not received the membership due by 21 October, your presentation will be cancelled. Please refer to the following link for membership application.
Q2: Can I pay the registration (and banquet/excursion) fee upon my arrival in Okinawa?
A2: Yes. On-site registration fee can be paid upon your arrival. Please pay the registration fee at the congress venue by cash in Japanese yen. If you have registered at the congress (or sent application forms A/B) by 20 July, an Early-bird registration fee will be applicable (fee: 11-20 July). If you have registered at the congress (or sent application forms A/B) later than 20 July, a Regular registration fee (fee: after 20 July) will be applicable.
Q3: Why is there a 'non-member rate' offered for the Congress as you have already stipulated that only registered members can participate in the session?
A3: The non-member rate for the JSL congress is only applicable if a person wishes to attend the congress without delivering an oral or poster paper as a presenter. Perhaps this is possible, if the supervisor (say, non-member) of a student (say, member) wishes to attend the congress or a local researcher/teacher/citizen wishes to attend the congress for one time only.
