Registration Tips

  • The daily registration fee covers all events (including morning workshops) except the Sunday field trip.
  • Morning workshops have limited space so you must select yours as part of your registration. Register early to ensure a spot!
  • Afternoon events (mini workshops, plenaries, poster and oral sessions, and teaching demonstrations) are open to everyone who has registered for that day.
  • Participants are responsible for their own meals and accommodations (room blocks are available at a discounted rate).
  • If you wish to contribute a talk, poster, or teaching demonstration you must submit an abstract in addition to registering for the Rendezvous.


Registration via the website is now closed. If you are planning to attend the Rendezvous in Madison, but have not yet registered, please contact Krista Herbstrith (kherbstr at
