RNA 2012 Registration and Fees
Those who wish to submit an abstract must first register to attend the conference. The deadline for abstract submission is March 11, 2012 to be considered for an oral presentation, and March 31, 2012 otherwise (i.e. to submit a poster-only abstract). Registration must be received and acknowledged before you will be able to submit an abstract. Shortly after submitting your registration, you will receive a confirming email containing a link to the abstract submission site. Your registration ID number will be required for abstract submission.
Consider the length of time your institution takes to pay invoices. A purchase order number alone is not payment. Your check, wire transfer or credit card payment must be RECEIVED by April 15, 2012 for the early discount to apply and to keep your abstract in the program. After April 15 you will owe the full registration fee, even if you completed online registration prior to March 31.
Fees (US Dollars)
The early registration fee is $725 for current RNA Society members and $835 for non-members (consider becoming a Society member to receive the $110 discount!). On April 1 the fees will increase to $805 for members and $905 for non-members. Your RNA Society membership number will be required to receive the member rate.
Conference registration fees include:
- access to all lectures, workshops, poster sessions and coffee breaks
- conference materials including program/abstract book
- 9 meals: 4 lunches (Wednesday through Saturday), 4 dinners (Tuesday through Friday) and the Saturday night banquet
Spouse/guest meal packages, which include 8 meals but no access to lectures, workshops, poster sessions or coffee breaks, may be purchased with registration for $226. Guest tickets for the banquet are $40. Additional abstract books can be ordered with registration for $25.
The conference must receive notification of cancellation in writing by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cancellations may be partially refunded subject to the following fees:
- Cancellation received by March 11, 2012 – forfeit $100
- Cancellation received between March 11 and April 15, 2012 – forfeit $250
- Cancellation received after April 15, 2012 – not refundable
