Conference Registration

The only registration method available is through the conference web site, as it places your details directly into our database, and where you can pay by Visa or MasterCard through our secure web server. Checks or money orders must be paid in U.S. dollars and be drawn on or paid through a U.S. bank. Wire transfers will be accepted only under special circumstances, and will be charged a $50 service fee. For wire transfer information please contact directly. Both checks and wire transfers must be received by Oct. 16, 2015.
