*Take advantage of the AES, ASIH, HL, and SSAR society member rates – renew your membership or join now!

*In order to present in Austin, all presenters, including symposia presenters, must register and pay for the meeting.  Please note that submitting an abstract does not automatically register you for the meeting.  Online registration is a separate system from the abstract submission site and requires a separate login username and password.  Your username and password are not necessarily the same for the two systems.

Registration System

The K-State Global Campus Conference Unit is using a new registration system this year.  We hope that this new service will provide a smooth and easy process for our clients.   You will need to create a new customer profile that will make registering for future meetings a snap!  The username and password you’ve used in the past, will not work in this system.

You must purchase a separate reception ticket in order to attend.

Registrations (at the late fee rate) will be accepted after May 19 11:59:59 CST. Walk-on registrations will be assessed an additional fee as indicated above and there can be no guarantee that social event tickets, materials, or t-shirts will be available.

Accompanying Persons

The $150 accompanying persons fee includes all hosted breaks and receptions, as well as meeting materials. The accompanying person registration is offered as a courtesy to spouses and lifetime partners who do NOT intend to participate in the regular academic program other than attending the presentation(s) made by their professional counterpart. Anyone who intends to participate in the academic program by interacting with poster presenters and/or attending oral presentations must pay the full registration fee.


If you have a guest accompanying you to Austin, but they do not wish to participate in the meeting, you may mark them as a “Guest Only” on the registration form. Doing so allows our registration staff to keep a more accurate accounting of who is attending the social functions. Guests will receive no meeting materials and are not entitled to any refreshment breaks or the reception unless purchased for them. Social event tickets may be purchased for guests on the registration form.

Visas and Other Documents

You are responsible for all travel arrangements, including procurement of visas, if necessary, and acquisition of currency sufficient for your stay. A formal letter of invitation for the 2017 annual meeting to help acquire visas or funding is available. If you require a personalized version of the invitation letter, please send your request to Marty Crump.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

The K-State Global Campus may cancel or postpone any event or activity because of insufficient enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances. If a program is canceled or postponed, the K-State Global Campus will refund registration fees, but cannot be held responsible for other costs, charges, or expenses, including cancellation/change charges assessed by airlines or travel agencies. Registration fees will not be canceled and refunds will not be issued if the program is held, but the registrant is unable to attend due to travel delays or cancellations caused by inclement weather or due to any other extraordinary circumstances beyond the control of Kansas State University.

If you must cancel your registration, please do so as soon as possible by sending an email to with the subject line “Joint Meeting Registration.” Substitutions are encouraged. If you need to make changes to your registration, go to the online registration form and log in using the username and password you created at the time of your original registration. A full refund, minus a $50.00 administrative fee, will be made if cancellation is received in writing by Kansas State University by 5:00 p.m. CST on Friday, June 2, 2017. After that date, due to guarantees we must give, refunds are not available. Refunds cannot be given in amounts less than $5.00.

Registrants who do not cancel their registration through Conference Registration are responsible for the total meeting registration fee even if they do not attend the meeting and have not paid the registration fee.

Special Assistance

Kansas State University is committed to making events accessible to all participants. A participant in a conference or non-credit program with a disability who needs accommodations or has special dietary requirements should indicate services needed at the time of registration.  If you have further questions please contact Brandi Nelson at  Early notification is requested to ensure that accommodations can be provided in a timely manner.
