Registration and Fees

Q: Does the workshop provide any financial aid?
A: Unfortunately we are unable to provide any financial assistance.

Q: What is covered in the registration fee?
A: Workshop materials and other instructional costs are included in the fee. Breakfast, lunch, and coffee/snacks will be provided, but participants are on their own for dinner.


Q: I am not sure whether I could legally stay in the US for the workshop without a visa, or if this is not the case, what visa I would need. Do you know what the current regulations are and can you sponsor my visa application?
A: Please check all US entry-related matters on your end, as different countries have different immigration agreements with the US. We are not able to help with the entry processes to the US. As of October 26, 2004, there are some changes that international travelers to the U.S. should be aware of. For the latest information about obtaining visas, visit the web site:



Q: Am I registered as a University of Illinois or Georgia Institute of Technology student for the workshop?
A: No. The workshop participants are not legally registered as students at UIUC. Attending the workshop is comparable to participation in any conference or a professional meeting and does not establish any formal association with UIUC or Georgia Tech.

Q:Will I have internet access at the hotel and the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering & Bioscience?
A:Yes (details to come...)
