Space is limited in workshops and they are also subject to cancellation because of lack of registrants. Therefore, Advance registration for workshops is therefore highly recommended. Please register by April 15th to aid planning (and ensure viability) of the Workshop that you are interested in.

Conference registrants can sign up for workshops directly through the registration site. For workshop-only registration (i.e., registering for a workshop without registering for the conference proper), please contact the conference Registration Chair, Eric Frew with your name, e-mail address, and PaperPlaza PIN.

Payment Options

Conference and workshop registration payments, whether in advance or on-site, must be made with a credit card and will be charged in U.S. dollars. Purchase orders, bon de commandes, promissory notes, bank transfers, personal checks, and cash will not be accepted.

Refund Policy

If an author has uploaded a paper using his or her registration, the registration will not be refunded even if the paper is withdrawn or the author is unable to attend the conference.

Other requests for a refund of the advanced registration fee will be processed as follows:

  • Requests received by the advance registration deadline of April 15, 2013, will be fully honored and all registration charges will be refunded.
  • Requests received between April 15, 2013 and June 3, 2013 will receive a 50% refund.
