SS23 has ceased to use PayPal as the payment gateway. Instead, we have created a registration platform for credit card payments. If you wish to register for the conference, there are two ways for paying registration fees:

  1. Direct access to the new registration platform:


  2. The “Pay Later by Bank Transfer” button on the registration page of Ex Ordo

    If you do your registration on Ex Ordo, you will only see a button of “Pay Later by Bank Transfer” now. Please click the button and wait for an invoice sending to your registered email address. Then you will see the above link for making credit card payments. We will enter your information into the Ex Ordo system once we receive your payments and information.


If you need to make a bank transfer, please email us at and we will send you the bank details.
