Statement on Registration Fees for Contributors

Registration is required for all contributors attending the conference. (Contributors are defined as presenters. session chairs and session organizers). In general, we would like all participants to pay the full registration fee, if possible. However, in the case of contributors the organizing committee has set forth the following guidelines:

  • A registration discount will be offered to all contributors. This discount will allow for a 2-day registration at a cost equal to a 1-day registration based on the early-bird registration rate.
  • Contributors to oral sessions and traveling from outside the Midwest area are eligible for a 2-day registration at zero cost.
  • Contributors to oral sessions and traveling from outside the Chicago area (> 100 miles) are eligible for a 1-day registration at zero cost.
  • Contributors to oral sessions and with financial hardship are eligible for a 1-day registration at zero cost.

The discount code associated with category 1 will be automatically sent to all contributors. To receive category 2 - 4 discounts, the session organizer must submit to the program committee an email request for discount for each eligible contributor. If approved, the committee will provide the appropriate discount code to the contributor.
