All Session Chairs and Presenters must be current members of FATE by February 15th of the conference year to ensure that their sessions and abstracts are published in the conference program.
CONFERENCE PRESENTER POLICY
Due to the dynamic range of programming, as well as our desire for inclusion, we are not placing restrictions on the presenter/chair/co-chair participation for this conference.
CONFERENCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED
Everyone must register for the conference. The FATE conference is organized for the professional benefit of its members. Registration fees and membership dues cover the costs of the overall conference. Session chairs have the responsibility to make it clear to their accepted and invited speakers that all conference participants, including all chairs and presenters, must be FATE members and register for the conference.
Session rooms will be provided with one digital projector and one projection screen. Laptops will not be provided. Mac users must provide the proper VGA adapter for a digital projector.
It is the position of the planning committee that the first session on Thursday is as important and informative as the last session on Saturday. However, we understand that scheduling conflicts and other factors can limit participation to various times and days. Therefore, if you have such a limitation, bring it to your session chair’s attention immediately upon your acceptance to the session. Effort will be made to accommodate your requests, but there are many factors that determine the final schedule, and it may not be possible to meet your individual needs. The conference director’s decisions on scheduling are the final word.
After March 15, 2021 conference registration refunds will not be offered, as payment will have already been submitted to all conference programming. The processing fee for reimbursement will be deducted from your refund. Cancellation requests should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Refunds will not be granted for no-shows (registrants who do not attend the conference).
