POWERCON 2012 IEEE PES Student Support

Student Support Options

The subsidized reduced student registration fees has been made possible primarily  to ensure that all POWERCON2012 Student/GOLD/WIE attendees pay the most economical conference registration fees but at the same time enjoy maximum participation, deriving all benefits of attending this premier Asia-Pacific (IEEE R10) Power System conference.  The registration fee structure for the students (shown below) is arrived bearing this in mind.
