Registration for the conference allows participation in all scholarly activities: keynotes and roundtable, conference papers and lightning papers, poster exhibition and digital projects showcase, and exhibitions of archives and rare books. Registration also covers coffee breaks, lunches (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday), three receptions (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday) and some guided tours.

However, basic registration for the conference does not include the pre-conference workshops, the banquet, or additional tours and excursions.

It is not possible to register for a single day or part of the conference.

There is a registration category for companions who will not participate in the scholarly activities but who wish to attend the receptions. In this case, the fee covers the three receptions (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday). Companions are welcome at the banquet upon payment of the banquet fee.
