What are the registration discounts for speakers?

  • Speaker discounts may not be combined with other discounts, such as member, committer, alumni, or group discounts
  • Speaker discounts are not transferable; unauthorized use will result in your registration being cancelled and additional registration fees may be incurred
  • All speakers must register for the conference in order to attend the session and give the talk

How do I register as a speaker?

Speaker discounts are implemented via coupon codes. Here are the steps in registering as a speaker:
  • If you have submitted a talk, please do not register until you know the status of your submissions
  • Sign your speaker agreement before registering
  • On the registration page, choose the Speaker role if your talk has been accepted
  • If you are registering with a speaker coupon code:
    • Enter the code and proceed with registration
    • If you do not see your discount reflected in the amount due, please email us for help
  • If you are not registering with a speaker coupon code, proceed with registration

How do I get my coupon code?

Codes will be emailed to speakers after the program is chosen.

Does everyone listed on a talk need to register for the conference?

Anyone and everyone who plans to attend the conference in ANY role needs to register!

Does everyone listed on a talk need to sign the Speaker Agreement?

Yes, everyone listed on a talk as either a Presenter or an Assistant needs to sign a Speaker Agreement. It's important – this is your way of communicating to use that you do intend to show up and give your talk!

What should I do if I need to cancel my talk?

First, try to find a colleague who can fill in for you and then email us to let us know. Registrations are transferable if your plans change. If you must cancel, please email us as soon as possible so that we can fill your place in the program with a talk on the waiting list.
