Technical Program Registration Fees
By August 1, 2018, a link to online registration will be available.
Exhibit booth staff will be registered by their exhibit managers. Short course registration information will be added to the website in October 2018.
The following technical program registration fees cover admission to all platform and poster sessions, exhibits, group lunches, receptions, and daily continental breakfasts and refreshment breaks.
Paid by Nov. 1, 2018
|Paid after Nov. 1, 2018|
Registration discounts apply only to payments received by the specified dates.
* The university fee applies to full-time faculty and other teaching and research staff, including post-doctoral students.
** The student fee is reserved for full-time students through Ph.D. candidates whose fees will be paid by their universities or who will not be reimbursed for out-of-pocket payment. Documentation of current enrollment is required.
No financial assistance is available to support registration or other costs of attending the Conference. All presenting authors and session chairs are expected to register and pay the applicable technical-program registration
fees. This policy is necessary because registration fees are the major source of funding for the Conference and a significant percentage of registrants will make presentations or chair sessions. No exceptions are made to this policy.
Non-U.S. Registrants. For registrants outside the United States, it is recommended that you wait until your visa application has been approved to register. Refunds will not be granted after the “no refund” date in the
event your visa application is denied. If you require an invitation letter from the Conference Office, please email the request to email@example.com.
Sponsor and Exhibitor Waived/Discounted Technical Program Registration
The link to register waived and discounted technical program registrants will be available by July 16, 2018. The Organization ID associated with the company’s booth reservation will be required to register discounted sponsor/exhibitor
technical registrants and can be found in the booth reservation confirmation email.
Only those registered for the technical program will be admitted to technical sessions. Anyone making a platform or poster presentation or chairing a session must be registered for the technical program. Technical program registrants
may staff the exhibit booth as needed.
Sponsors. Participation as a Conference Sponsor qualifies an organization to two waived technical program registrations and two discounted technical program registrations ($700/each).
Exhibitors. Participation as an Exhibitor qualifies an organization to two discounted technical program registrations ($700/each).
Booth Staff Registration
The link to register booth staff will be available by July 16, 2018. The Organization ID associated with the company’s booth reservation will be required to register discounted sponsor/exhibitor technical registrants and can be found in the
booth reservation confirmation email.
Booth staff must be registered by the Booth Point-of-Contact. Booth staff are defined as your employees who will be attending the Conference solely to work in your exhibit; they will be admitted to food functions but not to technical sessions unless registered
for the technical program. Booth staff badges are not transferable to other individuals and may not be traded/swapped to avoid technical registration fees. Booth staff registration must be done online. Once a booth has been reserved, the Booth
Point-of-Contact may access registrations at any time to add/update booth staff. The Participation ID of the person being registered is required.
All booth staff must be registered online by January 11, 2019. Any changes or additions after January 11, 2019, will be assessed a $35 charge.
