FAQs:

 1. How will I know where the rooms are for the sessions?
You can find the rooms for each session on the printable conference agenda (to be release January 10, 2018). The planning team will also be stationed throughout the weekend to help you!
2. Will food be provided during the conference?
Yes, lunch on Friday and Saturday will be provided.
3. What if I get there late and miss the registration window?

Due to high demand, all attendees are encouraged to check-in on time during the day’s registration window. Once a session begins, late arrivals will have to wait until there is a break or transition to enter. Furthermore, some interest-specific panels throughout the weekend require you to register for them when you arrive at check-in. Due to limited space, those sessions will be filled on a rolling basis. So the earlier you arrive the better! To see the registration window for each day, go to the printable conference agenda (to be released January 10, 2018).

4. How much time do we have between each session?
In order to stay on schedule and to respect the time of our guest speakers,  there will only be a few minutes for transition. Once a session is over, you must go to your next session promptly. All session leads will start on time and will not wait for late arrivals. Throughout the weekend, volunteers will be helping attendees get from room to room.
5. Is parking available?
Parking may be difficult to find, so it is not highly recommended. However, if you do choose to park nearby please give yourself ample time to do so. As an alternative to parking, please consider taking the train. The 1 train to 116th Street Columbia University is the closest station.
6. Will there be tickets sold at the door?
Unfortunately not, the event has reached maximum capacity therefore seats are sold out.
