Registration Information
for the 63rd annual WSSA conference (2021)

held virtually, due to COVID-19 disruptions.

Refunds are available to persons who register for the conference and then later learn that their papers were not accepted.   See "Refund Policy", below.

Online Conference Registration

Registration for the 2021 conference is open.  All persons "attending" the conference must register, to receive their individual access codes.  This includes all presenters.

Participants must create a user account in order to register and to submit a proposal.  Each user only needs to create one account; the same account can be used for both submission and registration.  IF you have already created a user account in order to submit a proposal, you will not need to create an additional account.

Deadline to register is March 29, 2021.

The new registration system allows people to enter their registration information, but delay their payment for a short time.  Payment must be made within 7 days of registration, OR by April 3, whichever comes first.  Unpaid registrations will be considered invalid, and will be cancelled after 7 days.

There is no "early-bird discount" this year.

  • Registration fee, professional :  $150.00
  • Registration fee, full-time student :   $130.00
  • Registration fee, non-presenting guest : $9.00
