If you are a current ASM member, the registration system will automatically pick this up and offer you the member rates, please be sure to use the same profile/email address as your ASM membership. If you are applying to be a member prior to the early bird deadline, please allow ample time for your membership to be reviewed and accepted by The ASM. This is particularly important for Student Memberships, as supervisors must be contacted to confirm your student status.

You can register for AusME 2019 by clicking the link above when available. This will take you to the Currinda online registration system. If you have attended an ASN Events conference before or if you are current ASM Member, you will need to log in to your profile as a returning delegate with your original email and password.

If you are registering with Currinda for the first time, you need to register as a new delegate. You will be taken to a page where you can enter your personal details. This will be the only time you will ever need to enter your details for any event run by this software.

Once you have completed your registration, you will receive a confirmation email, outlining what you have registered for. If you do not receive this email, either your email was entered incorrectly or your registration is not complete. If this happens, please contact the conference secretariat, please do not re-register.

You can use your email and password to access your registration at any time to make any necessary changes such as adding additional add-on's, making a payment, downloading your certificate of attendance or your current invoice.

If you wish to make changes to your registration type after you have registered, please email the details to the conference secretariat - do not re-register.
