What Do Registration Fees Include?

While the ATS International Conference does not host official “social” events, it does offer a number of networking opportunities where attendees can discuss the science presented at the conference or their own work.  Registration Fees cover the cost of all items at the International Conference listed under the GENERAL REGISTRATION FEE below, and generates revenue to support other educational activities, year-round.  The ATS, through other revenue sources like member dues and advertising, cover the cost of any ancillary food/beverage costs at the International Conference.
