OMAE 2023 > Register



Register by April 24, 2023, to receive the Early Bird rate. Online registration will allow you the opportunity to make changes and additions to your registration as necessary until Wednesday, May 31, 2023.

You must register with the same email linked to your ASME account/Toolbox Login in order to obtain registration rates applicable to you. Failure to do so will result in a price difference that does not meet your registration level.

The one-day rate can only be used to attend the conference, not to present a paper.


You are entitled to present up to two papers on which you are listed as an author. Only an author of a paper is permitted to present that paper. Please be advised that ASME will:

  • Check to ensure all papers have an author registered to present. Notification will be sent to the presenting author of a paper if there is not an author registered and identified as presenting the paper.
  • Check to ensure that an author is not presenting more than two papers.

According to ASME's presenter attendance policy, if a paper is not presented at the Conference, the paper will not be published in the official archival Proceedings, which are registered with the Library of Congress and abstracted and indexed. It will also not be published in the ASME Digital Collection and may not be cited as a published paper.

In addition, each paper must have at least one author registered for the conference.

Member and Presenting Author Rate is applicable to a member of ASME.

Non-Member Rate includes a four-month Free Trial Membership following the conference. ASME will contact you after the Conference to provide further details.

Student Rate: Student registration rates are only available to undergraduate and graduate students who are enrolled full time and have not yet received their Ph.D. Post-docs may not register as students.

For each technical publication and technical presentation, a minimum of one author must be registered at the Presenting Author Rate. An author of a paper who meets the student qualification noted above may register at the student rate and present the paper only if one of the paper’s other authors is registered at the full Conference rate.

Proof of student status is required to confirm the student rate. Proof consists of a copy of the student's identification card or a letter from the institution's registrar verifying student status. Student identification will need to be uploaded during the online registration process. If proof of student status is not received within two weeks of registering, the Student Rate will be invalid and the Non-Member rate will apply.

One-Day Rate is applicable to members and non-members attending the Conference for one day, rate being only available for purchase on-site at the conference.

Author registration deadline is Monday, April 3, 2023. Payment must be received in full to be able to submit a final paper. Early Bird rates are available until Monday, April 24, 2023. Pre-registrants who pay their registration fee after Monday, April 24, 2023, will be charged the regular registration fees.

FAQ Australian GST

  1. Why am I paying a GST on the Congress Registration Fee?
    You are paying a Good and Services Tax (GST) on the registration fee because it is required by the laws and regulations of Australia. They establish that GST must be paid on the fees to congresses held in Australia.
  2. Can the GST be recovered?
    The GST is only recoverable for businesses registered for GST in Australia. Individuals and businesses not registered for GST in Australia cannot get the refund of the GST paid.
