Please click here to register. Read the latest updated Schedule at a Glance.

After you process your payment, you will receive a confirmation receipt from PayPal, which serves as the confirmation of your conference registration. You do NOT need any additional confirmation. We track PayPal reports on a daily basis.

If you have already registered for the conference but decided to add some additional options like lunches or bus tours, or a preconference workshop, here is how you can do it.

Fill out the registration form again but this time choose from the pulldown menu an option Conference Registration for Invited Speakers and Volunteers. This option is free but you need to select it to proceed with an Add-On Choice of other options (lunch, bus tour, preconference workshop, etc.), and then make your payment.

We prefer payments via PayPal but if you are a resident of the country where PayPal is not supported, please contact us at, and we will make sure to help you with a different payment option. Before you start the registration process, please read below about the conference options and highlights.


Cancellations will only be considered when received by email only. 

  1. Registrations cancelled before October 6, 2019, are eligible for a full refund minus $40 processing fee.
  2. Registrations cancelled during the period between October 7 and October 17, 2019, are eligible for a 50% refund of the registration fees paid and an additional $40 processing fee.
  3. Registrations cancelled after October 17, 2019, are no longer eligible for a refund.

 All requests for cancellations, refunds, and transfers should be emailed to:

Conference Organizing Committee

Registrants who do not show up for the conference and do not contact Conference Organizing Committee (via email as listed above) prior to the end of the conference automatically forfeit all registration fees paid unless your inability to contact us was due to a verifiable emergency medical issue that occurred within one week prior to the start of the conference. In this instance the postmarked deadline to receive your request for a partial refund is November 7, 2019. Regretfully, no considerations can be made after this date.

REPLACEMENT/TRANSFER: If you are unable to attend for any reason, you can transfer your registration to another person without penalty. Simply email a copy of your confirmation letter with a cover letter stating your request along with a completed registration form from the person replacing you to the same email address as above.
