The registration form was updated on May 30 to include optional fee-based items, such as the Breakfasts with Experts, SIG Luncheons, the Gala Banquet, computer workshops, tours, etc.
- If you have already registered for the conference and want to add items or make other changes to your information, go to the Update Your Registration Info page. I have prepared a help page with screen shots showing the process that you can view here.
- If you have not already registered and want to begin the process, go to the Registration Form. The help page described above applies, but starting at Step 2.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT REGISTRATION
When registering, it is very important to read and follow the instructions on each page of the form.
In particular, a number of people have been making the mistake of completing their registration through the payment process before adding a spouse or domestic partner, despite the fact the the "Review" screen states, in bold at the top (and now in red),
"Please do not overlook the button below for adding an additional attendee, if appropriate. You must do that before clicking on the "Continue" button to complete the registration."
Once the "Continue" button has been clicked and the payment has been made, it is no longer possible to add another person to your registration.
Registration is open with the following schedule, with the cost of registration increasing for each successive period (see below):
- Early Registration: until midnight, EDT, April 30, 2013
- Regular Registration: from May 1 to midnight, EDT, August 2, 2013
- On-site Registration: August 3, 2013, until the end of the conference
We expect most registration fees to be paid by credit card through the registration form on this website. Some people worry about using a credit card online. From what we have read, this worry is generally not well founded; credit card processing online is generally safer than in-person processing. After all, when you hand over your card to a clerk in a store or to the serving staff in a restaurant, they have all the information on your card, including the special code printed on it. Internet systems generally protect the credit-card information much more carefully. While there have been online security breaches, most credit-card fraud arises in other ways. In addition, most credit cards include complete coverage against fraudulent charges.
If, for some reason, you cannot use or do not want to use a credit card, payments may be made by check. However, please observe the note below.
Payment by Check
If you plan to pay by check, please do not fill out the registration form until you are ready to mail the check to the conference treasurer (the payee and address information are provided on the payment page of the form, on your confirmation, and below). When you indicate on the form that you are paying by check, enter the check number in the box provided.
If we do not receive the check within one week of the registration, we may cancel the registration. To take advantage of special pricing, the check must be received by the treasurer prior to the cut-off date.
Checks should be made payable to "IAJGS Boston 2013" and sent to the Conference treasurer at:
5000 Red Rock St. Unit 145
Las Vegas, NV 89118-1277
Spouse/Domestic Partner Definition
The reduced "Spouse/Domestic Partner" registration fee applies only for spouses and domestic partners who reside in the same household. It does not apply for roommates, siblings, parents, children, or other relatives of the primary registrant. The Conference reserves the right to verify the status of anyone registering in this fashion.
The cancellation policy depends on the time at which notice of cancellation is received, as follows:
- On or before July 7: For cancellation notices/refund requests submitted by midnight EDT July 7, 2013, there will be a full refund of all registration fees and all additional charges, less a $50.00 administrative fee.
- On or after July 8: For cancellation notices/refund requests submitted on July 8, 2013, or later, there will be no refunds. We regret if illness, a family emergency, or other reasons mean that you must cancel your registration after July 7, 2013. We know, however, you will understand that we have incurred obligations to others based upon your registration.
There will be no exceptions to the cancellation/refund policy. You may want to consider buying trip cancellation insurance.
To cancel your registration, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
