Registration Information

Please submit your paper/panel proposal using the online form. Please remember that SEC-AAS membership is required for participation; if you are not yet a member, or have not yet paid your dues, please do so (for credit card payments you can use the link below; or you can pay by check payable to SEC/AAS, and sent to Dr. Charlotte Beahan, Department of History, 6-B Faculty Hall, Murray State University, Murray, KY 42071-3341, using the posted membership form). 

We will review proposals during the first half of November and will contact you regarding registration and payment very soon. Payment of the conference fee must be received by Dec. 15, 2014 in order to enjoy the early bird discount and to be included in the printed program.

Dear SEC-AAS Conference Participants:

Thank you again for your patience while we ironed out a minor problem behind the scenes on the payment platform. According to our information, no one has been charged anything, and you can check that on your own accounts. The online payment system is now functioning normally, and I encourage you to use it to pay your SEC-AAS dues and the conference fees for our meeting at UVA. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to provide a few pointers in case you find the payment page confusing:
  1. SEC-AAS dues ($10 for student presenters and $20 for all other presenters) provide financial support for the regional association and are not used for conference expenses. All paper presenters are expected to pay Association dues. Thus it is a separate item on the payment menu so that we can separately keep track of who has paid.
  2. The standard conference fee is $85 at the early bird rate, which gives you access to panels and all catered events. The student rate is $40. The deadline for the early bird rate is Dec. 15, which is coming up pretty soon, so the online platform is the safest way to ensure you receive it, but I provide instructions for mailing checks below if you prefer.
  3. After Dec. 15, the regular conference rate goes up to $100, including on-site. Student participants’ conference fee, however, remains at $40 even after the deadline.
  4. Those who are coming from outside UVA as discussants, but who are not giving papers, are expected to register at the regular rate, but payment of Association dues is optional.
  5. Guests, friends and family members may get Panels Only access for $40, but must pay the full registration fee ($85/$100) if they want to participate in the catered events as well.
  6. Conference fees can be paid in the form of a check as well, made out to the University of Virginia, and mailed to 2015 SEC-AAS c/o Margaret VanEkeren, Department of East Asian Languages, Literatures and Cultures, PO Box 400781, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA 22904. Checks must be postmarked on or before Dec. 15 to qualify for the early bird discount.
See you next month in Charlottesville!
