23rd Annual RIMS Conference: 31 May - 2 June 2018, Amsterdam

Would you encounter problems when paying your RIMS membership, please be informed that we are indeed having some issues with the online payment system linked to the website www.eurims.org. Our IT team is working on a solution, but this might take some time.

In the meantime, if you would like to register for the Annual Rims Conference (Amsterdam, 31May – 2 June), please use the temporary RIMS membership code: “RIMS TBC”. The early bird fee applies until 9 March, 23:59 (Brussels time).

We will come back to you once the technical issues have been solved, with further instructions on how to proceed to finalize your RIMS membership renewal.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,
RIMS Secretariat

Conference & Teaching Course Registration

You can register now by clicking the orange button below.  


Please note pre-registration is mandatory and registration will be done on a first come, first served basis. We accept individual registrations and group registrations.

Individual Annual Conference Registration

Individual Annual Conference Registrations should be made online and are available until Sunday 27 May. After that date, only on-site registrations are possible. 

The registration cannot be shared by two or more participants. As such, only the participant whose name appears in the registration file may pick up the badge onsite and no substitutions will be allowed once the badge has been picked up. 

Group Annual Conference Registration

If you are making a booking for somebody else or for more than one person, you are considered the group responsible

Please note that the group responsible is not registered for the Conference. In case the group responsible wishes to attend the conference, he/she needs to register as a delegate as well.

One invoice will be created for the entire group.

The group registration is only valid after the full payment for the group registration has been received. 

The early-bird rate will only apply to participants whose payment is received by the Conference Secretariat within 7 days following to the early-bird deadline. After this date, the participants will be charged at the regular rate.


In case of an individual booking, the participant will receive an email confirmation when the registration is final

In case of a group booking the registration confirmation can be sent to the group responsible or to the individual delegate, depending on the email address that is filled out in the field "Email Correspondence" on the first page of the registration form.

PhD session - registration and fees

A special programme (lunch not included) for PhD Students takes place on Thursday, 31st May 2018.

This is the perfect arena to meet experienced researchers and other PhD students working in the MS-field. We will give you the ability to practice your conference and presentation skills in a friendly atmosphere. Now it’s your chance to present your research ideas, semi-finished instruments and products, first study results etc. and get input from well-known and experienced researchers in the MS-field! We are looking forward to meet you all!​

The goal of this newly developed program especially for PhD students is to network and to have the opportunity to share knowledge with other PhD students and a panel of experts. We encourage students to attend from the very start of their research project to the last year of their PhD, as this gives them the opportunity to develop their professional network and improve their presentation skills over time, and to receive feedback on their projects at different stages.
