Registration is open!
Please read this policy carefully before registering
Because we expect that almost all participants will be either students or valuable speakers, we have one flat discount rate for all participants. The Fierces on BICA 2016 Registration Fees are, Early-Bird Regular: $250 USD, Late Regular: $350 USD, Guest (a companion for social events only; maximum one per participant): $100 USD. Special arrangements can be made for a limited number of Volunteers: please contact the Organizers. The Registration fee covers:
Admission to all Fierces on BICA 2016 sessions on April 21-24, including Lectures, Breakout Groups, Discussion Panels, Roundtables, Demos and Posters;
Associated meals and social events, including the Welcome Reception, a prepaid lunch and all coffee breaks (participation in the banquet on the tower requires an additional fee of $30 USD per person at the time of registration and is limited to registered participants and registered guests);
One-year complimentary BICA Society Active Membership with the associated benefits, including free electronic subscription to the journal BICA and a $50 discount in registration for the conference BICA 2016 in New York;
A registration package, including electronic and hard copies of Fierces on BICA Proceedings, plus promotional items.
Payments must be made using the link below with a major credit card (acceptable card types are shown on the right). Payments are made in US Dollars. Regular registration payment implies acceptance of the BICA Society Bylaws and a one-year Free Complimentary Membership in the BICA Society. To decline acceptance of bylaws and a Free Complimentary Membership in the BICA Society for the 2016-2017 Academic Year and its benefits (including online subscription to the Elsevier journal BICA and a $50 USD discount in registration for BICA 2016), you would need to enter a comment in the Special Order Instructions box under your credit card number during the checkout. This choice will not reduce your registration fee.
School materials will be distributed on site. A limited number of promotional items will be made available at the registration desk. In general, refunds of the registration fee payment upon cancellation will not be provided. Registration payments made in a wrong category will be considered void and will not be refunded.
Electronic payment instructions
General instructions on how to make electronic payments using the BICA Society Shopping Cart are available here. When registering, please remember the following. Never use the "back" button or double-clicking. Avoid using the same credit card twice within a several minute interval: this may result in a "duplicate transaction" error. If you receive it, please wait for at least 10 minutes and then try again.
To make a payment, click on the link below, then click on the appropriate Fierces on BICA 2016 registration category. Please note that you do not need to use or create a Customer Login with Username/Password. After clicking on the correct registration option, read the message and click on "Add To Cart", ignoring again the Customer Login prompt. At this point, if you are not adding any additional features such as the banquet on the tower or a guest registration, you may click "Checkout". Otherwise, you should click on the category "Fierces on BICA 2016" on the left again, then add another payment: e.g., a registration for your guest, or a banquet-on-the-tower ticket for the registered guest. You can also make payments separately, if you need to generate separate receipts for them. Before clicking on Checkout, you may want to print the current page as the quotation.
After clicking on Checkout, you will need to enter your billing information, check the box below, click on "Continue with Purchase", select your payment method, and finally enter your credit card information. If necessary (see above), you should enter Special Order Instructions that will appear in your transaction records. Click on "Submit Order" once. Do not forget to print your receipt that will appear on the next page. A shorter, text-only version of the receipt will be sent to you automatically via email.
