Payment by credit card is available through online registration. Because we need to use an outside vendor for this, there is an addition $6 fee to register online.

You may also register by mail or email (payment by check required). You can mail your form and check, or you can email your form and pay in person at Augsburg. The registration table will open at 8:00am on November 10, in the Christensen Center at Augsburg University.

Registration forms need to be received by November 5, 2018.


We again are inviting students to do poster presentations of their research. Most students are not likely to have finished projects by early November, but presentations of work-in-progress are very welcome. And, while a professional-looking poster is wonderful, it is definitely not necessary, as students can just use material they have printed out.

Stands and boards will be available. The board size is 40” x 30”. The poster session will run from 8:30-9:45am. Poster presenters should arrive by 8:15am to set up.

Because we need to arrange in advance to have enough stands, please let us know who will be doing posters by Monday, November 5, 2018.
