Once on the Conftool system, you will first be required to create a Conftool account. Once logged into that system, there are several options which you will be presented with:

  • Register as Participant [required]: This option will allow you to register for the symposium itself.
  • At the first step, you have four options to register under:
    • Guest: If you are attending TVIW with a regular attendee but will not be sitting in on any of the sessions, this registration covers meals and snacks for the conference duration.
    • Regular: If you will be attending TVIW in full, choose this option.
    • Student: If you are a student and would like to attend TVIW, GOOD NEWS!!!! We offer a special discount off of regular registration price to encourage participation. Contact Doug Loss if you have any questions.
    • If you are a sponsor, contact Doug Loss for more information.
  • At the second step, make sure you select the symposium to attend, and any pre-symposium seminars that you would like to also participate in (for an additional fee).
  • You may choose to attend either the Sagan Meeting sessions or Working Track sessions. Since these events happen concurrently, attendance at one will prevent attendance at the other. You can find descriptions of the two sessions through the hyperlinks.
  • Once your total has been added, registration logging will confirm the submission but registration will require payment before final confirmation.
  • Please note: Attending pre-symposium seminars is separate from attending the symposium itself.
