Workshop Registration

The registration deadline is May 16, 2013. Only participants selected through the application process may register.


You must complete the following form in one sitting - you cannot save and return at a later time. Be sure to click the SUBMIT button before leaving this page, or your information will be lost.

Personal Information











Please Note: Your email address is what we use to track your application and participation in the workshop. Email is also our primary means of communication with you, so please check that you typed it correctly. Be sure to use the same email address that you used in the application process and in all forms relating to your workshop participation. Thanks!





Do you have a disability, food allergy, or diet preference (including vegetarian) that requires accommodation at the workshop?




PhotoWe will prepare a participant information sheet for this year's workshop. If you want your photo to be included, please upload one. Submission of a photo is optional, but STRONGLY encouraged. Having your photo included really helps the workshop leaders and other participants get to know you quickly.

These photographs will be modified to fit a standard size, which will be small. If possible, please send a photo that features your face (a head shot) instead of one where you are relatively small within a landscape.


All uploaded files are public unless you are in a private workspace

Title: A descriptive, human readable title.

e.g. 'Student Handout for Sauerkraut Assignment'

Select the file: Make sure it has an appropriate suffix (e.g. .doc) or specify the type in the Optional Fields below

Description: A very brief description of the file.

File Type:


The system will attempt to determine the correct file type based on the name of the file you've selected. Choosing the correct file type here will override that.

File Name:

e.g. 'student_handout'
This will be the name of the downloaded file. By default the system will generate this based on the title you specified and the type of file. If you specify a name here it will over-ride the automatically generated name. This is generally only useful when uploading file of a type not recognized by the system (not in the list of file types above). In that situation choose File Type: Unknown Binary and include the appropriate suffix in the file name here. e.g. myfile.m3z Avoid spaces or special characters in the file names.

Authorship/Reuse

Either:
I am the author (copyright holder) of the contents of this file and people are allowed to reuse it for non-commercial purposes as long as they give me attribution as described by this creative commons license.
Or
Who is the original creator/copyright holder of the information in this file?

Provenance/Acknowledgements

A short description of where the material came from. Include names and institutions of authors and contributors as well as acknowledgment of any work from which this was derived.

Reuse License

The creator/copyright holder must have agreed to allow distribution of this file through this site.
If you are the creator we strongly encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option.

If none of the above licenses apply describe the conditions under which this material appears on this site as well as any information about reuse beyond this site.

Distributing information on the web generally requires the permission of the copyright holder--usually the original creator. Providing the information we request here will help visitors to this site understand the ways in which they may (legally) use what they find.

If you created this file (and haven't signed away your copyright) then we'd encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option. You'll retain the copyright to your file and can do as you please with it in the future. Through this choice you are also explicitly allowing others to reuse that file as long as they give you attribution, and don't use it for commercial purposes.

If the file (or content within it) was created by others you'll need their permission. If it predates 1923 or was created by a U.S federal employee (as part of their job) it is likely in the public domain (and we can all do as we choose with it). The original author may also have explicitly stated how it may be reused (e.g. through a creative commons license). You can describe the licensing/reuse situation in the box above.

Without permission you should not upload the file. There are several options in this case:

  • You can contact the original author to get permission.
  • You can provide a link to (or a description of how to get) the original material rather than uploading it here.
  • You can find a substitute that isn't encumbered by copyright.
  • You can create a substitute yourself. Remember, ideas can't be copyrighted, only particular expressions of those ideas. Of course you'll want to give credit the original author.

The Stanford Copyright and Fair Use Center has more good information about copyright as it applies to academic settings.

Research Release

I have read the Description of the Research Project and Implications for Participation (opens in a new window) or it was read to me. I know the possible risks and benefits. I know that being in this study is voluntary. I choose to be in this study. I know that I can withdraw at any time. I am at least 18 years of age and voluntarily grant permission for the described release and use of notes and comments regarding me in the workshop.






Workshop Product Release

In confirming my registration for this workshop, I agree that any audio recording or images (still or video) made of me during the workshop may be used on the project website, in printed project publications, and in materials developed by the project. I further agree that my contributions to creative works that emerge from workshop activities (e.g., discussions on the email list, contributions to the web page, summaries of group discussion, etc.) may be used by the workshop series, PIs, and conveners for development of future workshop materials, for scholarly reports, and for promotion of the workshop series. Attribution for original contributions will be made whenever possible.

Payment

The registration fee for this workshop is $200 for NAGT members and $245 non-members. If you are not a member, but would like to be one, you can become one right now - just choose the middle option under Registration Fee below. One-year NAGT memberships range from $20 (students) to $45 (US faculty) and come with discounts to other On the Cutting Edge events as well as a suite of other membership benefits. Learn more about membership in NAGT (opens in a new window)

If you are local and do not need lodging or breakfast, please select the full registration fee option based on whether or not you are an NAGT member (or if you'd like to join) AND check the box that says you are local and will not need breakfast or lodging - this will subtract the lodging and breakfast portion ($100) from your registration fee.

PayPal will automatically send out a payment receipt by email if you pay online. We know from past experience that some participants have had trouble receiving their receipt due to their spam filter settings. You may be able to avoid this problem by white-listing "sendmail@paypal.com" within your email preference settings. Contact Charlotte Betsinger (cbetsinger at carleton.edu) if you would like us to forward a copy of the receipt.

If you plan to pay for your workshop registration by check, make your check out for the total registration fee shown below payable to the National Association of Geoscience Teachers.

By submitting payment for this workshop, you are accepting responsibility to cover any costs incurred should you withdraw from participation in the workshop after June 7, 2013. Arrangements have been made on your behalf that have associated real costs (e.g. logistics, materials) and your confirmation has secured a place that has been denied to other interested colleagues. Exceptions will only be made in cases of extreme personal hardship.
