Registration Information

The ACES 2016 Organizing Committee is working diligently to generate sponsorship funding to keep registration fees as low as possible. If you are interested in helping out by becoming a sponsor or know someone else who might be, please contact Conference Coordinator Kristin Zupancic at

For budgeting and travel planning purposes, we recommend estimating a registration fee in the range of $465-$565 (or $265-$365 for students). A finalized registration fee schedule and the online registration form will be posted on the website in the spring of 2016.
