Registration fees

GEO-OPEN-HACK-2024 is a not-for-profit event organised by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in collaboration with Spatial Ecology. The event delves into advanced cutting-edge open techniques, tools, and best practices for efficiently handling and processing vast amounts of geospatial data. Participants will gain hands-on experience in leveraging HPC resources and geo-tools for tasks such as geospatial data preprocessing, spatial modeling and analytics, and visualization.

This page provides fee payment information. For anything else please refer back to IIASA’s GEO-OPEN-HACK-2024 webpage.

Create an account in Wise using for a commission-free transfer, and pay the fee in your home currency by converting it into the GBP, EUR or USD fee value above (i.e. as on-site or web attendee). You can link your Wise account with your bank or use a credit card for the payment. Wise is the simplest and cheapest option, especially if your base currency is not EUR, GBP or USD!

Note if you can only pay by international bank transfer:

  • If you or your sponsoring institution can only pay by bank transfer in a currency other than EUR, GBP or USD, contact for details.
  • Banks can charge high transfer fees and expensive currency exchange rates that are not always apparent.
  • You must therefore ensure that any bank charges are paid separately and not deducted from the transfer amount.
  • We must also receive the full amount stated in your fee category after your bank factors in their foreign exchange rate.
  • If there is a shortfall in the course fee received, we will request you to clear the outstanding balance by making another payment, which may incur further costs for you or your sponsor.


Refund policy: A written request for registration cancellation must be emailed to the hackathon steering committee members. If registration cancellation is requested by 30th April, 2024, the full registration fee will be refunded. If a cancellation request is submitted after 30th April, 2024, we will retain 80% of the fees unless a new candidate is able to replace the withdrawing candidate.
