We recommend you register by the deadlines (Early Registration is October 1, 2006 - January 15, 2007; Late registration is January 16-March 15, 2007). Afterwards, walk-ins accepted on a first come, first served, space availability basis. Seats will be sold at the event only if there are openings.

Q. I am only able to attend on one of the days, not all three. Would I pay a reduced registration fee?

Q. What is included in the registration fee?
A. Admission to the conference, daily breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks.

A. UCLA CTO/Ticketmaster will assess a separate and non-refundable "per ticket" fee of $5.00 and a non-refundable "per order" fee of $4.10. Please note that the "per order" fee is a charge per transaction, NOT per ticket. For example, if you pay for 3 general public registrations in one transaction, you would pay a flat $4.10 per order fee. These two fees will be assessed to all registrants and are in addition to the conference registration fee.
