What is included & the cost

All conference events, lodging (Sunday - Thursday nights), field trip, meals, snacks, coffee breaks and limited alcoholic beverages (from supper Sunday through lunch Friday), and transportation between the conference venue and CLT airport will be included in registration costs. 

Participants will not need vehicles during the conference. All activities will be within a small 'campus' and golf cart service will be available if guests have mobility limitations. 

Because of our contractual obligations with the vendors conference costs cannot be adjusted for non-leader participants who choose to stay off-site or drive themselves. 

As of October 2021, we anticipate a cost of ~$1200. This may decrease depending on our ability to recruit conference sponsors. Know someone with a company that would be interested? Contact us! If your abstract/application is accepted, full payment will be due by March 15. Payment will be non-refundable after May 1. 


Thanks to NSF, we can provide funding to cover conference costs for some attendees.
