Note that there is a slight increase in the registration fee this year, as NASA rules result in more costs being passed on to the registrants.

Credit card registrations:
 Participants registering by credit card MUST use the secure electronic registration form.

Other methods of payment:  Those registering using any other method of payment (check, money order, traveler’s check, or wire transfer) must contact the USRA Meeting Registrar for detailed instructions.

Third-Party Payments:  Participants required to register using a third party (e.g., SATERN for NASA civil servants) should still register in advance using the electronic registration form. The confirmation e-mail you receive after registering will include payment instructions to submit to the third party. Please be aware, however, that your registration will not be considered complete until the funds have been received.

Cancellations:  Requests for cancellation with a fee refund (less a 10% processing fee) will only be accepted through March 7, 2016. Those who fail to attend and do not notify USRA prior to the March 7 deadline will forfeit their full fee.

Working Press:  Media representatives providing press credentials will receive a complimentary badge allowing access to all conference sessions. Press credentials will be checked at the registration desk, where press badges will be issued.
