We’ve also closed our waitlist. We’re sorry we weren’t able to accommodate everyone who wanted to attend this year, but we’ll be livestreaming—learn more.

If our digital registration system or any other information is not accessible to you, please contact us so we can meet your needs.

Financial Inclusion

We know that for some of our members the price of registration is a barrier to attending our annual conference. This year we offered half-price registration on a first-come, first-served basis for a limited number of people who qualified.

Reduced-rate registration is now full. But if you join the waitlist and qualify for the reduced rate, please let us know in case we find additional funding for financial inclusion: To qualify you must meet the following criteria:

  • you are a current EPIC Member,
  • your gross income is less than $55,000 USD/year, and
  • you have no institutional support for professional development.


Who can attend EPIC2019?

Anyone can register and attend; you do not have to have an accepted proposal. Learn more about our community and attendees here.

What does registration include?

Registration fees cover the entire event except Tutorials and the Conference Dinner. Salons also require separate pre-registration, but are free for attendees. Learn more about our programming here.

What is the cancellation policy?

You may cancel your registration for a full refund before October 9, 2019. EPIC is a nonprofit organization and we use registration revenue immediately to fund the conference, so we cannot issue refunds after October 9. However, you may transfer your registration to another person. This policy applies to all registration components, including the Conference Dinner and Tutorial tickets.

Can I register on site?

The conference is sold out and registration is not available on site. Tutorials and Salons registration will also close before November 9.

I want to wait to register until I’m notified about whether my proposal is accepted. What if the conference sells out before that?

We are holding one space for each accepted presentation. Acceptance notifications will include registration instructions and the deadline for presenters to register is July 30.

Are there any volunteer positions available?

Every year our amazing conference is organized and run almost exclusively by volunteers. If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact the EPIC2019 co-chairs Julia Haines and Lisa DiCarlo. Because such a large percentage of our attendees are organizers, committee members, speakers, and co-authors, most of these positions do not include complimentary conference registration. For the limited number of volunteer positions that do include complimentary registration, we prioritize currently enrolled students.

I have another question.
