Call for Presentations - Due 9/22/23


The conference is primarily in-person and it also supports an online option for those who cannot attend in-person. Part of the fees for in-person attendees includes food during the conference. A similar proportion of the fees for remote attendees covers the expenses associated with managing an online conference platform. As such, the fee schedule is the same for both types of attendees. We made this decision so that we can offer a robust, flexible, and an as equitable experience for everyone, whether you are in-person or remote. Other factors involved include: increased cost for a conference app that works for both in-person and virtual attendees and organizers, increased costs for the in-person experience (audiovisual expenses, food and beverage costs, facility rental, on-site labor, travel costs, health and safety protocols, etc.), increased costs for the remote experience (internet and hardware for streaming, software for messaging and chat, labor, etc.), and it makes it easier for attendees to change their registration method from in-person to remote and vice versa.
