GECCO accepts Visa, Mastercard, or American Express. Payment must be made by credit card at the time of registration.

No cancellations or refunds will be given, but a registered individual may transfer their registration to either their self for GECCO 2009, or to another person for GECCO 2008. In either case, the registered individual must make the request for the transfer to Registration Support prior to the start of the conference. A registration is for one person, and may not be shared among individuals.

About the Registration Requirement for Authors and Presenters

Registration is the "cost" of a "ticket" to attend the GECCO conference.

GECCO requires at least one author of each accepted paper to purchase a ticket to attend to the conference. GECCO requires at least one author to attend the conference, so that someone is at the conference to present the research.

If a researcher has more than one accepted paper to present at the conference, there are NO additional registration fees. The author registers one time (pays for 1 ticket), and presents as many papers as have been accepted.

Similarly, if a paper has more than one author, and more than one author will attend the conference, then each author (person) in attendance must register (purchase a ticket).
