KES International currently has two grades of membership, Bronze and Silver. Other grades will be introduced over time, for example Gold and Platinum to reflect particular service to the KES community.
If you have registered for and attended a KES conference or symposium in the past year, submitted a paper that was accepted, and presented it, then you are a KES Silver Member.
KES Silver membership qualifies you for a reduced registration rate at KES conferences and symposia, typically about 50 Euros less than the Bronze member (or non-member) rate. Silver membership also gives you the benefit of an account on the KES Member Community Portal, for example your own profile web page, the ability to create a blog and receive KES email newsletters, and facilities for networking with other KES members.
If you meet the Silver member criteria, you should already be entered on the KES Member Community Portal; your Username is the email address we have on file for you. You may have been supplied with a password, but if not, you can use the 'Reset Password' link on the Portal login page.
Silver membership lasts for a year from the date on which you attend a KES conference or symposium. At the end of this time, if you have not attended another KES event, your Silver membership will revert to Bronze membership.
Please note that if you submitted a paper to a conference or symposia and had it accepted, but did not attend, or you did not present the paper, you do not qualify for Silver Membership.
Bronze membership is free of charge to anyone who is able to benefit from being associated with KES International. To obtain Bronze membership register on the KES Member Community Portal. You will be given a KES username and password that you can use access the portal and to register for KES conferences and symposia. Other benefits also comes from having an account on the Portal, for example an individual profile web page, the ability to create a blog and receive KES email newsletters, and facilities for networking with other KES members.
If you have already been involved in KES, for example by attending a conference or reviewing for the journal, you may already have a Bronze member account on the Portal.
