The academic rates apply only to full-time students and full-time faculty. Proof must be provided to receive the discounted academic rate (e.g., a student or faculty ID card). For all others, we offer an industrial rate. The industrial registration fees help to increase our ability to give discounted rates and travel stipends to students.

Refunds: Service fees (e.g., the two fees listed further below) are not refundable. If you make a refund request before May 13, 2011 to Wendy Cooper, then your workshop registration fees, tutorials fees, and extra gala tickets are refundable minus a $15 handling fee. Processing of refunds may take 2-5 weeks depending on billing cycles at the registration provider. After May 13, no refunds are available. You are welcome to have a substitute use your registration if you find yourself unable to attend at the last minute, but you must make a written request. Please contact Wendy Cooper if you have further questions.

While we do offer the purchase of guest tickets for the Monday evening gala dinner, we regret that guests are not allowed at any other RFIDsec events. All persons must have a valid registration for each particular event.

*The registration provider will add a $3.95 service fee for each registration. This is non-refundable.

**The registration provider will charge you an additional 4.95% surchange on all credit card transactions (appearing as part of the "Service Fee" on your receipt). This is non-refundable. If you prefer to instead pay by a cashier's check or postal money order, please contact Wendy Cooper before making your payment. Thank you.
