It appears one cannot register until flights have been purchased, since the form requires flight details.

This seems particularly troublesome for people applying for scholarships. Are they expected to purchase flights before knowing if they can come?

Can the flight info be optional?


@jeffneiman yes! @akanter & @burke had similar concerns.

Its important for the form to be split. That has been settled in the new form.

Also, the questions about accommodation only point you to the hotel site, it is not necessary to have your hotel reservation prior to completing the registration.


Can we remove the flight and accommodation sections from the registration? Historically we’ve sent out a separate form for flight information. This way people can register (especially scholarship applicants) and get their early bird rates!

i found the registration form confusing; I can register with little information, but it isn’t clear how i pay. I assume brown paper tickets is going to bill me but that is only an assumption.

@terry, thank you for your feedback. The form is designed in such a way it allows all members who are planning to attend, to register and proceed to make payments later on but within the given timeframes of early bird, normal and late registrations.

We have also included an acknowledgment note on the form such that, once you submit your form it provides a link to the wiki. The wiki provides the different payment options for participants to use.

I have however updated the wiki to clarify that one needs to make a payment using one of the methods provided after they register.
