NADS 2022 Meeting: Registration

The deadline for early registration has been extended to July 30, 2022! Registration must be complete in order to submit abstracts. Late registration will include an additional fee.

Welcome to the 2022 NADS Symposium at Indiana State University's Sycamore Outdoor Center. The registration form (Google form accessed by clicking the button below) includes Conference/Catering Registration (which must be completed regardless of whether or not you'll be staying at the Sycamore Outdoor Center), Housing Registration (if staying at the Sycamore Outdoor Center), and abstract submission. If you are staying elsewhere, you only need to complete the conference/catering registration portion of the form.

Registration: Registration is $300 USD per person (due at symposium registration in the form of cash or check). Registration will include all meals and coffee breaks. The deadline for early registration is July 30th; a late registration fee of $50 USD will be charged for attendees after that date.

Student discounts: All undergraduate students and graduate students can apply for reduced registration of $150 and for limited scholarships. This will include “Working for NADS” - you will be required to help with presentation loading, other tasks, and you will be chairing a scientific session. Please check 'yes' to this option on the registration form if you are interested.

Room and Board: Meals will be provided at the Sycamore Outdoor Center. Limited camping cabins are available on site. Housing options will be available as follows:

Housing at the Sycamore Outdoor Center:
You can opt to stay on site at the Sycamore Outdoor Center. There are 40 bunk beds spread through 10 small cabins located directly on site – however they are just bunk beds and electrical outlets and require you to bring your own sleeping bags and pillows. The cabin area also has covered outdoor picnic tables and a fire ring (see photos). On the bright side, this option is super cheap!

Rustic camping cabins: each cabin shares 10 bunk beds – cost $5 / night.

Outdoor camping: bring your own tents, set it up around the cabins – free!
