However, please sign up on our wait list. Last year we ended up adding nearly 50 people from the wait list by the time the conference started.
I tried to register but got shut out. How can I make sure to get in next year?
The conference does fill very quickly– often in a couple of days. Watch for the latest information via our Twitter or Facebook accounts or here. Submit a proposal! If accepted, you not only have a guaranteed spot at the conference, but also save money on registration.
Will there be a waiting list if I miss out on registration day?
Yes, we plan to maintain the list as long as needed to fill out the conference. We often have cancellations, so please use the waiting list if you miss out at first.
I registered online – what is the deadline for submitting the registration fee payment?
We encourage credit card payment via our secure payment site. You may also pay by check (made out to Macalester College) or using funds available via MINITEX if your institution has an active account. Payments made by check should be mailed within 10 days of registration, and must be received no later than January 15th, 2018. MINITEX will confirm that you have sufficient funds on account and will remit payment to the conference on your behalf by the payment deadline. If payment has not been received by January 15th, your registration will be canceled.
What is the mailing address for sending conference registration payment?
Those conference participants who choose to pay registration fees by check can mail the full two-day conference or single day registration fees to the following address:
Check payments must be received by January 15th or registration will be canceled.
Is it possible to get a refund of conference registration fee if I am unable to attend?
Refund requests received in writing (email to firstname.lastname@example.org is acceptable) on or before February 14, 2018 will receive a refund of registration fees minus a $35 processing fee. No refund is available after February 14th. Please note that payment should be made within 10 days of registration. See also our Inclement Weather Policy.
If I am unable to attend, can I transfer my registration to a co-worker?
If you have registered and then find yourself unable to attend, you can arrange to have a co-worker attend in your place if these arrangements are made no later than March 12th. To arrange for this accommodation, please email libtechconference@macalester.
If I have a registration question, whom should I contact?
