Registration Details

All attendees must register for the symposium. For a paper to be published in the symposium proceedings and be scheduled for presentation, at least one author must register. All fees are quoted in US dollars and include applicable taxes.

The regular registration rate includes the technical program, the symposium proceedings, lunches, and morning and afternoon breaks Tuesday to Friday (which includes HotPETS), the Tuesday evening symposium banquet, and the Thursday evening award reception.  An optional welcome reception, including appetizers and drinks, will be held on Monday evening.

Additional Guest registrations (including the welcome event, all lunches, the Tuesday banquet, and the Thursday evening award reception) are available for $200.

Registration for Monday's Workshop on Design Issues for a Data Anonymization Competition will include a morning coffee break, box lunch, and printed program materials.

Due to new travel restrictions, we are offering speakers and other potential attendees who will be unable to attend the symposium physically a webinar registration rate. We anticipate that webinar attendees will be able to present remotely, livestream video of all sessions, and submit questions for speakers.
