How to Register

Individuals wishing to register should contact their university advisor first (prior to completing the registration form) as there may be others in your university wishing to register and who may also have the same transportation and logistical concerns. Once your final group is formed, your advisor can complete online registration for all individuals in the group and complete the participant list.

What does the registration fee cover?

Individuals who have paid the registration fee:

  • will obtain a namebadge which provides access to all the conference related events (keynote speech, workshops, evening entertainment, and dance party);
  • will have all meals and snacks provided at no additional charge;
  • will also be provided a voucher to redeem for an ISLC t-shirt.

Registration is also required for all of the above reasons for non-students (faculty and staff members) who take part in the conference.

Deadlines and Fees
  • The Registration Fee is $60 per participant (student and faculty/staff)
  • University/Group Participant List must be received by March 8, 2019, at 5pm EST. Your university's/group's final and complete participant list must be submitted to Marlee Meikrantz Sharp.

No refunds will be issued for cancellations after the participant list is due. Substitutions may be made with prior notification.
