Remote attendee registration rates are for participants who are unable to attend the conference in person.

Links to recordings will be available to them after the conference.

Participants do not need to register for the conference if they only plan to attend workshop(s). Workshops will close on January 12, or when filled. Register early to guarantee your spot.
