General Registration Fee

Registration fees vary according to your membership category and the date by which you register.

Full Conference Registrants:
The general registration fee, offered at a reduced rate to members and non-members who register on or before March 21, allows you to attend over 90 percent of the meeting events without additional fees or tickets. It also entitles you to attend open networking events and the Exhibit Hall. Non-member postdoctoral trainees and students from any discipline must provide information about their training program to obtain the much reduced student conference registration rates.

ATS members receive a discount on their conference registration. You must be a member before you register in order to receive the special member rate. To join, click here to complete a membership application. Your username and password will be emailed to you promptly, and you can then register for the conference at the discounted member rate. Full members receive a larger conference discount than affiliate members. Non-members do not receive a discount.

Registrants in this category must accompany a full conference registrant.  This category allows access to the Opening Ceremony, Awards Session, Plenary Session and Exhibit Hall only. Those registering in this category are not eligible to receive CME, Nursing Contact Hours, or MOC points or to attend postgraduate courses, seminars, or workshops.

Research Administrators/Association Executives:
This category is provided for those individuals (1) who attend for reasons other than obtaining professional accreditation hours, (2) who are not health care professionals working clinically in pulmonary, critical care, or sleep medicine, or (3) who are not actively engaged in the conduct of basic, translational, or clinical research. For instance, research administrators (non-scientists or clinicians), research coordinators, executive staff of related professional organizations, or other individuals with an organization but not a clinical or scientific interest in the ATS International Conference would register under this category. Registrants in this category may attend sessions that do not require additional registration, but may not register for postgraduate courses, seminars, or workshops. Registrants in this category are not eligible to receive CME, Nursing Contact Hours, or MOC points. If professional accreditation or other professional recognition is desired, then a member or non-member registration is required.

Clinical Research Coordinator:
This category is provided for clinical research coordinators who are not ATS members. Clinical research coordinators must provide information about their place of employment in order to register in this category. Registrants in this category may also register for postgraduate courses, workshops, and seminars. Registrants in this category are not eligible to receive CME credit, Nursing Contact Hours, or MOC points.

Members of the Press:
The ATS offers a press room at the International Conference. All members of the press must be approved by the ATS Communications Department to register.
