BUCLD Preregistration: Full (Four-Day) Conference

Select BUCLD Preregistration type* Rates are discounted during preregistration. Preregistration closes on October 20th, at which point regular price registration will open. The “Postbacc Trainee” category includes postdocs and lab managers.
How will you be attending the conference? Access for in-person vs. remote/virtual attendance: The keynote, plenary, and symposium presentations will be presented in person and live-streamed for remote participants, and questions following these presentations will be taken from both the live and remote audience. The majority of other presentations (talks and posters) will be in-person and not live-streamed. However, with presenters’ consent, in-person talks will be recorded for later viewing by remote participants; in-person posters will not be recorded.
If you are giving a presentation, do you consent to having your presentation recorded (for later viewing by remote participants)?
