Student Registration

Registrants who choose the Student category need to provide proof of student eligibility by e-mailing to the Registration Chair at realtimereg@ieee.org a copy of a student status certificate or ID card to by May 12 AND by bringing the original student status certificate or ID card to the registration desk at the hotel. If official proof of student status is not provided, the participant will be required to pay the full non-student registration fee to attend the conference. Additionally, postdoctoral fellows ("postdocs") do NOT qualify for the reduced Student registration rates.

New Member Registration

Explore the benefits of IEEE and NPSS membership and save!

An IEEE membership desk will be located close to the Registration Desk. Staff will be available to answer questions concerning the benefits of membership. By joining during the conference, non-members will receive a $50 deduction from new IEEE and NPSS membership.

Students joining at the conference will receive a year's free membership if they provide a statement from their mentor that they are full-time students. However, it is more advantageous for students to join prior to coming to the conference, in order to qualify for the reduced student registration rate.

New memberships obtained on-site will not qualify you for discounted registration at this conference. To qualify for the reduced member-only rates you must become a member prior to registering and prior to the start of the conference (and provide proof of your membership).
