Registration policy: Please read carefully before registering

The BICA 2016 Registration Fees are, Early Regular: $550 USD, Late Regular: $700 USD, Early Attendance-Only: $400 USD (no presentation/publication), Late Attendance-Only: $550 USD, Guest: $100 USD. Each registered participant can bring one special guest, e.g., a family member. Guest registration covers admission to social events only. Members who joined or renewed BICA Society membership in 2016 receive a $50 USD discount for Regular registration and need to contact the Chairs before making their payment. Our registration policy is that at least one author of each BICA 2016 conference or symposia presentation shall pay the Regular registration fee, and at least one Regular registration fee payment per each tentatively accepted paper is required before its final acceptance for publication before the deadline. Regular Registration fee covers:

  • admission to the HLAI-16 multi-conference, including all BICA 2016 sessions on July 16 – 19, workshops, discussion panels, Doctoral Consortium, demos and posters;
  • associated meals and social events, including the Welcome Reception and coffee breaks (participation in the banquet requires an additional fee of $40 USD per person at the time of registration and is limited to registered participants and registered guests);
  • one year complimentary BICA Society membership and the associated benefits, including electronic subscription to the BICA Journal;
  • a registration package, including electronic conference proceedings and the conference program with abstracts.

A Guest registration is limited to social events only. An Attendance-Only registration does not allow the registrant to be included in the program or any BICA 2016 publication venue. Payments must be made through this BICA Society website using a major credit card.

Regular registration payment implies acceptance of the BICA Society Bylaws and a one-year Free Complimentary Membership in the BICA Society. To decline acceptance of bylaws and a Free Complimentary Membership in the BICA Society for the 2016-2017 Academic Year and its benefits (including online subscription to the Elsevier journal BICA), you would need to enter a comment in the Special Order Instructions box under your credit card number during the checkout. This choice will not reduce your registration fee.

Conference materials will be distributed at the conference site. A limited number of promotional items will be available at the registration desk, including BICA Convention t-shirts and proceedings of previous BICA conferences. In general, refunds of the registration fee payment upon cancellation will not be provided. Registration payments made in a wrong category will be considered void and will not be refunded.

Electronic payment instructions

When registering, please remember the following. Never use the “back” button or double-clicking. Avoid using the same credit card twice within a several minute interval: this may result in a “duplicate transaction” error.

To make a payment, click on the link below, then click on the appropriate BICA 2016 registration category. Please note that you do not need to use or create a Customer Login with Username/Password. After clicking on the correct registration option, read the message and click on “Add To Cart”, ignoring again the Customer Login prompt. At this point, if you are not adding any additional features such as the banquet or an extra page fee, you may click “Checkout”. Otherwise, you should click on the category “BICA 2016” on the left, then add another payment: e.g., a registration for your guest, or a banquet ticket for the registered guest. You can also make payments separately, if you need to generate separate receipts for them. Before clicking on Checkout, you may want to print the current page as the quotation.

After clicking on Checkout, you will need to enter your billing information, check the box below, click on “Continue with Purchase”, select your payment method, and finally enter your credit card information. If necessary (see above), you should enter Special Order Instructions that will appear in your transaction records. Click on “Submit Order” once. Do not forget to print your receipt that will appear on the next page. A shorter, text-only version of the receipt will be sent to you automatically via email.
