-         Registration for “Tutorials only” makes it possible for you to choose several tutorials (no limit) from the conference extensive continuing education program.  You will get the material from every tutorial as well as entry to the conference social functions.

-          à la carte registration options are also available.


There are a number of discount opportunities, specifically:

-           $300 discount for attendees who stay at Hyatt Regency Houston, the conference hotel.  This discount is given because the hotel will charge the conference for the meeting rooms if the number of hotel rooms rented by conference attendees falls below a predetermined level.  This discount is also available to residents of the greater Houston area

For participants from outside the United States:  Visitor authorization and Visa: NEW REGULATIONS

There are new regulations that may affect individuals who did not need a visa before (for example, Western Europe, Japan, Australia, South Korea, etc.).  Even if you do not need a visa, you may still need to fill out a “Travel authorization” in order to enter the United States.  Please visit the above website for current rules pertaining to your specific country of origin.  

If a visa is required for your country, we may be able to assist you:

Information about Invitation Letters for Visa Applications

If you do not need a visa because you are a national or citizen of a Visa Waiver Program (VWP) country, you will still be required to obtain travel authorization prior to initiating travel to the United States.  There are currently 35 VWP countries, mostly in Europe, Japan, Australia, South Korea, etc.  This authorization can be obtained online through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).  For further details, see: http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/without/without_1990.html. The application process can be done electronically at:  https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov.

Refund Policy:
A refund is possible before September 1, 2009.  A $35 (US dollars) cancellation fee will be deducted from the paid registration fee.

All refund requests must be in writing (e-mail is preferred) and should be received by the Conference Chair (bruno.lequesne@ieee.org) before September 1, 2009. There will be no refunds for requests received after this date.


If an author has uploaded a paper using his/her registration, the registration will not be refunded, even if the paper is withdrawn.
