Participation is limited to those having received notice of acceptance of their abstract. If an abstract is accepted for presentation, lodging and meeting expenses for the attendee will be covered by the Organizing Committee as far as funding permits. A small registration fee is allowed if financially necessary (as of 2015). Attendees will be financially responsible for their own travel expenses to and from the meeting site. Attendees are expected to participate in the entire conference.
