How will registration work?

Registration is a 5 step process:

  1. Enter your personal details (name, address, email, etc).
  2. Select your conference registration type (Student, Corporate, etc).
  3. Optionally select any tutorials, etc
  4. Submit your payment via Paypal.
  5. Payment confirmation is manual, and might require a few days.
  6. Once confirmed, you will receive a BSDCan registration confirmation.

You will get two emails from BSDCan. The first email indicates that your registration information has been received (it should arrive almost immediately after you complete step 3). The second will arrive after we have received notification of your payment, which will take a few days. Any refunds will not be issued until after the conference.

Payment methods

We are using Paypal as our payment method. If you already have a Paypal account, you may use that. If you do not have a Paypal account, you can use your credit card via Paypal. Our Paypal address is

NOTE: if you have special circumstances, please contact us and we'll see what we can do.


BSDCan has a harassment policy. All conference attendees are expected to comply with this policy. Mind you, it's pretty much common sense, courtesy, and plain old good behaviour. Such conduct is expected within our community.
