Conference fees

The conference fee covers almost every expense, except room's mini-bar, phone calls and travel, and includes:

We'll also accept registrations without room at the Allerton House. Attendees registering this way will have to find their own accommodation and transportation. In this case the fee for full-time students includes everything from above except accomodation.

Guests who want to stay before or after the conference will be charged individually for lodging and any meals you choose to take. If you plan to stay before or after the conference please contact the chairs.

Bootcamp fees

The bootcamp fee includes accomodation costs for one night and meals on the day of event.

Payment methods

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover cards.


After registering for the conference, within a week you will receive a confirmation email and your name will be listed in the participants list page . If you don't see your name in the list, please contact the chairs.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Cancellations may be made up until September 1st, 2014. There is a $75 cancellation fee. Refunds will be made within four weeks of the end of the conference. There is no refund for cancellations after the 1st of September 2014.

At any time you may transfer your registration to another person. To do this, email a confirmation note authorizing the person to attend in your place. Both parties will be contacted via email or phone to verify transfer of registration.

"No-shows" are not refundable and are liable for the full registration fee. If you can't attend, and it is past the refund date, then consider transferring your registration to another person.

Please feel free to send any additional questions or comments to the chairs.
