Attention: We've been having a few problems with the online form. Although the Paypal payments seem to be going through well, the conferee information which accompanies them sometimes doesn't. So we recommend that you use the mail-in form if possible. (For registrations postmarked by March 27, you may pay the discount price.) If you still want to register online, after doing so please e-mail Gloria at the link on the lower right of the home page to make sure that she has received your information
