The Ecological Society of Australia actively supports the professional development of future ecologists, and the long-held policy of subsidising to keep student registration fees as low as possible will continue.

Registration fees will help to cover the costs of holding a virtual conference. These costs include the purchase of software licenses required to deliver concurrent sessions and presentations, host live speaker interaction, social and networking events, host content onlinen for an extended period after the conference, and ensure cybersecurity. The other key cost for the virtual conference is the staff time required to organise and execute the event, and assist presenters and attendees throughout the conference.

The ESA has set fees in order to cover costs, and does not expect to profit from the conference.

The ESA has always been committed to making the conference accessible to as many people as we can, and for that reason this year we are continuing to offer grants and subsidies including financial hardship grants, and parental support grants. For more information please contact
