Full conference registrations include access to all sessions beginning with the keynote session at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 29, and running through Wednesday mid-day, November 1; all social events listed in the program, unless otherwise noted, including the Awards Luncheon (additional tickets may be purchased); and one copy of the Proceedings of the Annual Meeting. Non-members registering for the full conference will receive a one-year complimentary ASIS&T professional or student membership (including electronic delivery of JASIST and access to the ASIS&T Digital Library).
In addition to the technical sessions and social events scheduled on October 29-Nov. 1, 2017, ASIS&T will offer full- and half-day professional education courses on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28. Fees for these seminars and workshops are in addition to regular conference registration fees. If you are registering for a seminar or workshop only, you do not have to pay an additional daily registration fee. You will receive a ticket for each seminar or workshop for which you register. Please make sure you receive the correct tickets when you check in at the meeting.
Members in good standing of ASIS&T and sister societies qualify to register at member rates. Our sister societies are Special Libraries Association (SLA), Medical Libraries Association (MLA), American Association of Law Libraries (AALL), International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI), Canadian Association of Information Science (CAIS) and Consortium of iSchools of Asia-Pacific (CISAP).
For every group of 6 registrations, one registrant will receive a free registration (at the same or lower rate). Full conference registrations only, all registrations must be submitted at the same time, and ASIS&T reserves the right to determine the complimentary registration. Please contact the registrar for arrangements.
Once you have submitted your registration, you will receive a detailed e-mail message confirming that you have registered and paid for the conference and/or any courses or workshops. This confirmation will also serve as your receipt of payment. All payments must be received by ASIS&T before the conference begins. We will accept payments onsite, but prefer to receive them in advance to avoid confusion. Early rates end September 15, 2017.
Cancellation and refund requests must be received in writing (email or fax) by Friday, September 22, 2017, and are subject to a $50 cancellation fee. Refunds will be issued in the same manner in which payment was made and may take up to four weeks after the conference ends.
On-site registration will be available during on-site registration hours noted here. All speakers and pre-registrants must check in at the registration area to pick up all conference materials.
