- We do our best each year to balance cost to keep it as affordable as possible. - Pick a price point below: - Student and Post Docs: $75.00 - Faculty/Independent Researchers (people with jobs who’ve graduated): $125.00 - I feel like covering some extra fees: $130.00 - If your university/job is covering the cost of the conference, consider covering the fees for us! (not necessary, just an option). - If you use a paypal account, we will see the name associated with that account. If you pay directly with a credit card (no PayPal account necessary), your information will be grabbed from that page.
