Presenting authors automatically receive free registration. You do not have to register online. You can pick up your badge at the Courtesy Desk when you arrive at the RAI. Lines will be much longer at the other registration desks, so make sure to go to the Courtesy Desk for your preprinted badge. We will use the information you supplied on the paper-submission site.

You will have to use the online registration form if you want to purchase tickets for the mixer party or banquet.

Only presenting authors receive free registration (one author per paper). All other authors must register online.

(text added February 28)

Authors presenting "lecture" papers should meet with their session chair 30 minutes before the scheduled start of the session in the authors' lounge. All lecture papers are scheduled for 30-minute presentations, which will include a short introduction of the presenting author and a 5-minute question-and-answer session at the end. Authors are requested to remain in the room throughout the session answer follow-up questions that may arise during or after other papers in the session. Presenting authors who did not post a short bio online when submitting their papers should email the text directly to their session chair.
