Registration & presenter info


Registration is open, and at this point will be considered late: see fees for late registration below. Registered participants will be provided with breakfast, lunch, and coffee/tea breaks for all three days of the conference, as well as hors d'oeuvres on Thursday evening (October 11).

You will not be considered registered until you have filled out the registration form and paid the fees required using the payment form. If you are registering early as non-faculty and will not be attending the conference dinner, you do not owe any fees and do not need to fill out the payment form at all.
