How to become a member? nothing is simpler: choose the registration fees for members (460 €). This price will include the membership fees for the next two years, and we will transfer all the information to the European Society of Sonochemistry for the registration (after collecting your formal approval by email before). If you refuse the membership and the transmission of your information to the society, simply choose the price for non-members (560 €). The membership statue is valid for a period of two years, which expires at the Meeting date. So even if you were a member before, you have to pay for the period to come.


Students situation: we have made a special effort to welcome Master and PhD students, with a registration fees reduced to 260 euros (a copy of a valid student card will be requested for the payment).


Single day registration: to extend the participation to regional industrial partners, registration is possible for one single day (registration fees 100 €). To make easier the choice of the selected date, the program is structured to regroup all contributions concerning given topics on the same day.

- MONDAY: Food processing/Environmental remediation

- TUESDAY: Surface treatment/Cleaning /Interfaces

- WEDNESDAY: Materials/Nanoparticles

Please keep in mind that the final program will depend of the submission and selection process, that a single day registration does not allow to give an oral communication, and that the social event will take place on Wednesday afternoon.
