Regular conference registration fees include: conference materials; admittance to the keynote and plenary presentations; all paper, poster, and roundtable sessions; lunch on Friday; receptions (with cash bar) on Thursday and Saturday evenings; and coffee breaks each day. The conference registration fee does not include admittance to pre- and post-conference workshops, for which attendees must register separately. The full conference schedule and searchable list of presentations (with summaries) are on the schedule page.

Student registration rates are available for currently enrolled fulltime students. Proof of current student status is required at registration.

One day conference registration is for participants who will attend only on Friday January 24 or on Saturday January 25. The fee covers conference materials, admittance to all conference presentations on the selected day, lunch on Friday (for January 24 registrations only) or reception on Saturday (for January 25 registrations only), and coffee breaks on the selected day. Participants will be required to select the day they wish to attend during the registration process.

Remote attendee registration rates are for participants who are unable to attend the conference in person. Remote attendees will have access to live video streams of the keynote and plenary addresses, as well as to selected paper sessions and panel discussions; livestreamed presentations are highlighted on the PDF at the top of the schedule page, and they can watch those parts of the conference live in their web browser. Note that all times in the conference schedule are local time in Arizona, MST. Links to recordings will be available to remote registrants after the conference. Details about how to access the livestream are shared with remote registrants the day before the conference begins.

Workshop registration fees include the cost of instruction, workshop materials and a certificate of completion. Participants do not need to register for the conference if they only plan to attend workshop(s). Workshops will close on January 21, or when filled. Register early to guarantee your spot.

Visa Information

Most international guests will need to apply for a temporary, non-immigrant visa to attend our conference. For instructions on applying for a visa, please visit the U.S. State Department website. Here you will find a complete list of U.S. embassies around the world. 38 countries are part of the U.S. Visa Waiver Program, and do not require visas for most short-term visits to the U.S. Please see the U.S. State Department’s Visa Waiver Program website for full details.

It is highly recommended that you begin your visa application procedure as soon as possible to ensure ample time for the process. CERCLL does not provide “invitation letters”, however we can send you a letter to say that you have registered for the conference as soon as your registration is complete and this can be used in your visa application. (Please note that registration is complete only when the registration fee is received.) After you have registered, please send an email to cercll@email.arizona.edu to request the letter.

In the event that you are not able to obtain a visa after requesting this letter, we will refund your registration fees minus a $25 processing fee. To be eligible for this refund you must forward to CERCLL  your visa application denial by January 6, 2020.
