General Registration Information

Online registration for USNCCM12 is now open. Please read the important information below then click here to register.  Early registration will end at midnight, May 15, 2013 (Central Daylight Savings Time).  Regular registration begins May 16 and will continue through June 30, 2013.

If you wish to attend a pre-Congress short course only, you may register through this site. 

  • You may pay your registration fees by credit card (preferable) or by check or wire.
  • Because of processing costs, there will be an additional $50 service fee per individual participant registration if you choose the wire payment option.
  • The participant fee covers the conference abstracts and program, the ice-breaker reception, congress banquet, all coffee breaks and refreshments, and a two-year membership in USACM and IACM. The student fee does not include membership dues.
  • Postdoctoral Fellows should pay the "regular" registrant fee, not the"student" fee. If you are currently a student and will graduate in May or June 2013, you may register as a “student.”  Please note that all student registrants will be asked to show a student ID or other documentation regarding their status when checking in at the congress.
  • Reminder: only one registration per presentation is allowed. 
  • If you submitted an abstract and it has been accepted, you will need to register here to attend the congress.
  • There is no one-day registration.  Your registration fee is for the entire conference.
  • Please note that the banquet is included in your registration fee.  If you are bringing a guest with you to the banquet, you must purchase a guest banquet ticket for $75.  Banquet tickets will only be sold onsite.
