A: Paper/Poster presenters will be notified of their acceptance on June 1. We recommend you register now for the conference to secure the current pricing. If you are unable to commit to payment prior to acceptance of your paper or poster, you may register for the conference and when you get to the online payment screen, select ‘bill me’ from the payment method drop-down menu. This will lock you in at the current registration rate and you will have 30 days to remit payment.

The presenter discount does not apply to single-day registration.
