Registration for the Sixteenth World Meteorological Congress begins on 1 April 2011 and will also be carried out on-line.  Provision of information through the online registration system does not exempt Member States from the need to submit an original credentials document (see Credentials section). 


Focal point for participation

In view of their official status with WMO, PRs are invited to act as focal points for the online registration of their delegations to the Sixteenth World Meteorological Congress. Each focal point will receive a username and password providing access to the online system.


Pre-registration using the online system is highly recommended for all participants in order to avoid delays upon arrival at the Conference Registration Desk. Focal points are requested to register each member of their delegation individually. When the request has been received in the Secretariat, the focal point will receive an acknowledgement of the request to participate in the Sixteenth World Meteorological Congress.
Upon completion of the registration by WMO, participants of the delegation will receive a confirmation e-mail providing a registration identification (ID) number and further useful information.

On-site Registration & issuing of badges

Badges for the Sixteenth World Meteorological Congress will be issued at the CICG on:
Sunday 15 May 2011 between 2.30 p.m. and 5.30 p.m.

As of Monday, 16 May, and throughout the duration of Congress, badges will be issued between 8.30 a.m. and 5.30 p.m.
Those participants who have not pre-registered will be required to register personally at the registration desk by presenting official proof of representation, such as a letter of credentials duly signed by the appropriate governmental authority of the participant’s home country or, in the case of observers, a letter of representation signed by the head of the relevant administration or entity.
For further information, please contact the WMO Secretariat by e-mail at mail.

Official identification badges

Please note that in order to obtain an identification badge, a participant must bring a copy of the confirmation e-mail and present it to the Congress Registration desk, together with a passport or other official identification card. The registration desk will be located in the reception area of the International Conference Centre – Geneva (CICG).
