Registration fees

Conference registration includes access to conference sessions, materials and booklets, lunch (Monday and Tuesday), refreshments, optional pre-conference drinks, and a two-year membership to the Surveillance Studies Network (SSN). Full time graduate students (Masters and PhDs) have reduced conference fees. Furthermore, those graduate students with accepted paper submissions and that require additional support have the option to apply for the Fee Waiver Program (see below).

Membership to the SSN and any additional surplus from the conference will be used to promote the charitable activities of the Surveillance Studies Network, and in particular support the continued publication of the fully open access journal Surveillance & Society, and give other benefits to members.
