The registration process

Registration of participants, IST´s and contingent staff takes place through the national contingent for each country.  The head of contingent will receive a registration code for the contingent from the Moot organizing team.  The head of contingent is responsible for forwarding that code to all the registering participants and IST members, with instructions for what to do.  Each individual participant and IST member is then responsible for filling in his or her personal information, which the head of contingent approves before the registration is submitted to the Moot organizing team.  The registration will be on-line.
