Online registration is available on our Registration page. The page provides pricing and directs you to our Registration and Records website, where you will create an account and register for the conference. You will also have the opportunity to register for the optional Monday pre-conference workshops.
Yes. We will accept walk-in registrations onsite beginning Monday, November 6 at 7 a.m. We recommend that you register online if you plan to attend a pre-conference workshop since some of them fill up quickly.
Prepaid registrants who find they are unable to attend may send a delegate in their place without penalty. Refunds (less a 20% processing charge per registration) will be made on any prepaid registration for which we receive an advanced written cancellation to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1, 2017.
No Show: Those who pre-registered and do not attend the conference without written notification of cancellation will be charged the full conference fee.
A tentative schedule is available now. The program will be posted by mid-October. It will then be available for download on our Program Details page and on our NSSR17 Guidebook mobile app. Hard copies of the program will be included in each conference bag provided to attendees when they sign in.
Yes, all presenters must register online for the conference no later than September 1 to ensure inclusion in the conference program. Due to the number of presenters and budget considerations, we are unable to provide our presenters with a registration fee waiver or discount. Presenters are responsible for all conference-related expenses including registration, travel and hotel.
Presenters typically use a Power Point presentation for their session. Although authors wrote a paper that was peer-reviewed before being accepted for presentation, they will not read the paper as is often done at academic conferences. Presenters may refer to it if they would like, but the audience will want to hear about the research/programs in a more informal format.
Yes. We do not currently have the capability to post handouts online for attendees. All presenters will receive an email from us a few weeks before the conference providing more details about the quantity of handouts needed.
All presenters will receive an email from us with their presentation details in September. Concurrent sessions are scheduled to begin on Tuesday morning and end on Thursday around noon. Please keep this in mind if you make travel arrangements before being notified of your presentation time details.

We will email the form to you a few weeks before the conference. Please complete, sign, and return the form as soon as you receive it.
