Registration Materials - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Note that April 1st is the deadline for anyone wanting to present a map, paper or poster. Others may register after April 1, 2014, but may not be permitted to enjoy all the elements of the conference (meals, field trips, etc.), especially if attendance is robust as it has been in recent years. "At the door" registration is possible, but rarely do last second registrants participate in field trips or the banquet, BBQ, etc. Please avoid registering late.
If you are presenting a paper, poster or cartography (or workshop), you must have your title and abstract prepared in advance on a word processor (with spell check!). Abstracts are limited to a 150 word maximum.
If you are paying for yourself, please have your credit card ready. Please note that NO registration is complete until it has been paid for by yourself or a representative of your school or institution. You may not reserve a spot on a field trip simply by registering - you still have to pay to reserve a seat on a field trip or at a conference event.
Do not submit multiple registrations. WAIT until you are really ready, register once and do it right. Volunteer organizers of this conference cannot edit your registration multiple times.
