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, t-shirts, etc
  4. Submit your payment (via credit card, Paypal, cheque).
  5. Receive a payment confirmation email from PGCon.

You will get two emails from PGCon. 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 (usually immediately after you complete step 5). If paying via Paypal, this notification may take a few days.

NOTE: if you are paying by cheque, it may take 5-14 days to process your payment. Your second email will not arrive until after your cheque has cleared.

Registering multiple people

If you wish to register multiple people:

  • Register each person separately
  • Make one payment
  • Forward the payment confirmation email to and list the names of the people you are paying for

This will help us distribute your payment against each person. If you happen to make multiple payments, forwarding a list of names will also help us follow the trail. Thank you.

Payment methods

PGCon offers several payment methods.

  • Payment by credit card or Paypal

    We are using Paypal as our primary 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. Our Paypal address is
  • Payment by cheque

    We accept cheques drawn on Canadian or US banks (in either CAD or USD). Cheques must arrive prior to 1 May 2018. Please mail cheques to our mailing address. NOTE: if you have special circumstances, please contact us and we'll see what we can do.

  • Other payment methods

    Should you wish to use another payment method, please contact us.


PGCon 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 pretty much expected within our community and is the norm.
