Everyone attending the meeting is expected to register. Compliance is important for keeping our fees affordable, supporting the organizing entities, and advancing their goals. Only those who register will be included on the official Meeting Program (online and printed), or be allowed to present papers, or attend presentations and other functions. Registrants should wear their meeting badges at all times when at Meeting functions, and satellite events.

You do not have to be a member of LSA to participate in the meeting, although we encourage you to join, and will be delighted if you do.

Exemptions:  Exempted additional appearances include as a Reader on an Author Meets Reader session, or as a participant on a plenary, a Professional Development or Public Outreach session, or other special event solicited and/or authorized by the Program Committee Chairs.  For all other requests, there will be no exception to the rule.

Being a “non-presenting” paper co-authors does not count as your participation if they do not sit on the session panel and present the paper (Select “non-presenter” when the co-author is added to papers).
