Congress registration 


For the Bristol Congress, BSHM is using the ConfTool software system for participant registration and expression of interest, for online submission and reviewing of abstracts, and for payments.

To register with ConfTool and browse provisional programme


select ‘register new’, complete a registration form and choose a user name and password. Registration with ConfTool will allow you to log in at any time and receive email  updates from the conference organisers. It does not commit you to attending as a delegate or submitting a paper.

Each time you complete a transaction, ConfTool will send you a confirmation email for your records.

You can log in to ConfTool at any time from any internet-linked computer using your chosen username and password.

To view the congress programme select “Browse Conference Agenda”.  Abstracts for congress sessions can be viewed by clicking on the session title.

To book to attend the Congress

To book as a Congress delegate, login to ConfTool and follow the instructions.

When you have completed the booking form, you can choose your method of payment and you will be issued with an invoice and also bank account details.  The preferred method of payment is via electronic bank payment (BACS) or wire transfer at the time of booking.  This method of payment is secure, cheap and fast for you and the BSHM. You will receive an email receipt of a BACS payment within 7 days.

Registration as a participant will not be confirmed until payment has been made.

Please note: delegate registration closes on 31st August 2019
