What are my chances of getting in from the waitlist?

EPIC2018 sold out in 24 hours! We changed venues to accommodate more attendees, but remain sold out. We welcome you to join the waitlist in case we have cancellations. If you have questions about your position on the list, contact us.

What does registration cost and what does that include?

Conference registration is USD$750 or $600 for current EPIC Members. Student registration is $500 (see below). The non-Member rate also includes a one-year EPIC Membership, giving you many opportunities to join year-round learning events and access 4 years of conference video on demand.

Conference registration includes the main program, receptions, and lunch on days 1–3. You must purchase separate tickets during the registration process for the Conference Dinner ($60) and Tutorials ($100). Salons are free but topics must be selected at registration.

How can I get the student rate?

To register as a student you must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at an accredited college or university. During registration you will be asked to upload an image of your student ID or other documentation of your current student status. Bring this documentation with you to EPIC2018.

What is the cancellation policy?

You may cancel your registration for a full refund before September 9, 2018. EPIC uses registration revenue immediately to fund the conference, and we cannot issue refunds after September 9. However, you may transfer your registration to another person until October 1 (no transfers will be processed after this date). This policy applies to all registration components, including the Conference Dinner and Tutorials.

How can I modify my registration?

Use the link in your confirmation email or sign in here (you’ll have to click through the student question, but don’t worry, it will take you to your existing registration).

Can I register on site in Honolulu?

Last year we sold out two months in advance, so we expect on-site registration will not be available. Space for EPIC2018 is limited to 300 attendees. Advance registration is required for Tutorials, Salons, and the Conference Dinner.

Can I purchase a one-day pass or share my registration with someone else?

EPIC is a small gathering designed to maximize the learning and networking experience for attendees. Only full conference registrations are available and a single registration may not be shared among individuals. EPIC2018 has fantastic content every day—we hope you can experience the entire conference.

Is there a Code of Conduct, and what can I do if I experience harassment?

EPIC2018 is dedicated to creating a welcoming, respectful, safe and harassment-free conference experience for everyone. We value and promote the inherent worth of every person and group; foster dignity, understanding, and mutual respect; and embrace diversity. Please read our conference Code of Conduct, which includes enforcement and reporting procedures.

Will there be a livestream of EPIC2018?

We do plan to offer a livestream to EPIC Members—we’ll confirm that soon. EPIC Members can also access our archive of conference video, which will include EPIC2018 after the event, as well as other online learning opportunities.

I have another question. Whom can I contact?
