Conference Registration FAQ

 

Why do you need my email address and mailing address?

If you win an award you will be contacted via email and your letter of commendation and prize will be sent to your mailing address. The Science Atlantic privacy policy is found here.

How will I know that my conference registration was successful?

You will be brought to a new page stating that your registration was successful. If your registration is not successful, you will be presented with an error message detailing what went wrong with your submission.

How will I know that my abstract was submitted correctly?

You will be brought to a new page stating that your abstract submission was successful. If your abstract submission is not successful, you will be presented with an error message detailing what went wrong with your submission.

I attended a conference and did not receive a receipt for my payment – what can I do?

If you paid for your registration via PayPal, you received an email confirmation for your payment. If you cannot find this confirmation, you can log into your PayPal account to retrieve your receipt. If you did not pay by PayPal, please contact your conference organizer for a receipt.

I paid to attend a conference but require a refund. What do I do?

First, please review the Conference Registration Payment and Cancellation Policy, found here. If you feel that you should be eligible for a refund, contact your conference organizer.

Does Science Atlantic publish submitted abstracts?

Not in the sense of a “formal publication”. Science Atlantic does not lay claim to any submitted work. Any presentations made at a Science Atlantic conference are considered the intellectual property of the presenter. Your abstract will be published in the conference program, and if you are an award winner, your abstract will be included in the annual Awards Yearbook, but neither of these documents is considered a scientific publication.

You keep telling me to contact my conference organizer. Who is that?

Each Science Atlantic conference is coordinated by a group of volunteers at the host university. Please check your conference’s individual website to find the contact information for your conference organizer. If you cannot find a contact, please email conferences@scienceatlantic.ca and we will refer you to the appropriate person.

I have registered for a conference but cannot attend. What do I do?

Please contact your conference organizer (found on your conference’s webpage) as soon as possible to let them know and refer to the Science Atlantic Cancellation Policy.

I understand there are prizes for presenters at some of the conferences. What are they?

You can learn about each award, including criteria for evaluation, on the Science Atlantic Awards Information page.

I have another question!

If your question isn’t answered here, please email conferences@scienceatlantic.ca.
