Please read carefully, then follow the link below to the 4S Members site.

Logging In

If you submitted a paper or are listed as a presenter or author on an accepted paper, you already have an account with the registration site. Please avoid creating a duplicate account–it will only cause confusion and delay. If you don’t know your login credentials, use the ‘forgot password’ link. When you update your password, your user name will be displayed on the confirmation screen.

Fees and Options

Unless other arrangements are made with the 4S Sydney conference team, you must be registered for the conference by June 30th to be included in the program.

Early rates apply through midnight, EDT, June 1. All fees are listed and transacted in $US.

Concession’ rates apply to people who are students, unwaged or based in low-income countries.

Society’ rate: optional contribution towards 4S Sydney travel grant fund
4S Sydney has received unprecedented interest from scholars from low income countries, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. Travel and accommodation to Sydney is expensive, especially for students and unwaged scholars travelling from other regions. As a result, we expect a much higher demand for travel grants than usual. By selecting the Society registration, you make a $50 (US) contribution to the 4S Sydney travel grant fund. If you select this option, it will appear on your invoice as a registration fee.

If you do not see the member rates offered after you log in, you may elect to join 4S before registering. Use the ‘Membership’ link in the menu. (Note: If you see the message “Your membership is current and does not expire” when you log in, it means you do not have an active 4S membership. The message is referring to your Guest Membership in the web site. Apologies for the confusing language.)

Day registration
Invited guests and people who are NOT listed on the program will be able to purchase day registration tickets from the registration desk at the venue for $80US per day.


You can pay online by Visa or Mastercard immediately upon registering, or you may select the “bill me” option and print/download an invoice to be processed by your institution. Subsequent payment may be made online by logging back into your account to find the invoice, or may be paid by bank transfer. 4S strongly prefers online payment upon registration, for obvious reasons: pursuing people for payment is a nuisance for all involved. If you need information on how to send a bank transfer, contact .


The 4S Sydney 2018 banquet/conference dinner will be held in the striking Turbine Hall of the Powerhouse Museum. At this cocktail-style event, contemporary Australian canapés featuring seasonal flavours and local produce will be served beneath aircraft suspended above, while guests will have the exclusive opportunity to explore the exhibition Human Non Human that will feature in the space during the conference.
