FOR YOUR PAPER TO BE SCHEDULED AT THE CONFERENCE AND INCLUDED IN THE ONLINE PROCEEDINGS, AT LEAST ONE AUTHOR SHOULD BE REGISTERED AND THE PRESENTATION DOCUMENT SHOULD BE SUBMITTED IN CAMERA-READY FORMAT BY MONDAY, JANUARY 22, 2018.
Please note that the above January 22nd deadline is for submissions to be included in the program and to appear in online proceedings - the "early-bird" registration deadline of March 1st, is a separate deadline.
please read the following information prior to accessing the registration link.
The early registration fee, prior to March 1st, 2018, for WDSI will be $320, as in previous years; however, there will be an additional surcharge of $40 for all non-DSI members, which will go directly to DSI. (If you are a current DSI member, you do not pay this surcharge.) Early registration fee for students, as in the previous years, will be $160. Since students can become student members of DSI gratis, there will be no additional DSI surcharge for students, as long as they register as student members in DSI, prior to registering to WDSI 2018.
DSI members will need to login with their DSI credentials to get the member price. DSI, however, has a new membership management system, so if you have not already created an account, you will need to do so before you login and register. To create this account, first go to https://dsi-dev.org, choose the link in the upper right-hand corner of the DSI homepage for Member Login, and Create a New Account. Once you create this account, it should take you to a page that will give you a direct link to the WDSI 2018 meeting registration page. (Since you will need to login as a DSI member to get the DSI member price, it will not work, as it has in past years, to have your department administrative assistant register for you (unless you share your DSI login information). You could still use a departmental card if that’s what your institution does, but you would need to login first to get the member price.)
After March 1, 2018, there will be an additional late fee of $50 for regular registration and $25 for student registration. When you are registering at the DSI site, this "late fee" is deducted as a "discount" at the checkout for all registrations prior to March 1st deadline.
Student membership in DSI is free, so any students registering can save $40 by becoming a DSI member before they register (this can be done at the beginning of the registration process.)
The receipt that you will receive may not itemize your payment appropriately for your purposes requesting reimbursement from your institutions. If that is the case, please let us know by emailing Omer Benli <Omer.Benli@csulb.edu> to request a receipt that you use for reimbursement.
There is also Emeritus Registration for eligible colleagues. Emeritus status is defined as:
Members Pre-Approved for this status by the WDSI Board. Eligible members have served and made significant contribution to the WDSI organization, and are
Retired from their academic positions and no longer receive travel support from their institutions or company.
If you think you qualify for emeritus status, please contact Sheldon Smith (email@example.com) for registration information.
