Financial Inclusion

We know that for some of our members the price of registration is a barrier to attending our annual conference. We offer half-price registration on a first-come, first-served basis for a limited number of people who meet the following criteria:

  • you are a current EPIC Member,
  • your gross income is less than $55,000 USD/year, and
  • you have no organizational support for professional development.

If you meet these criteria, please contact us to apply for half-price registration.


Who can attend EPIC2020?

Anyone can register and attend! Learn more about our community and attendees here.

What does registration include?

The basic registration fee covers the entire event except Tutorials and the Conference Dinner. Salons require separate pre-registration, but are free for attendees. Learn more about our programming here.

What is the cancellation policy?

You may cancel your registration for a full refund before September 25, 2019. EPIC is a nonprofit organization and we use registration revenue immediately to fund the conference, so we cannot issue refunds after September 25. However, you may transfer your registration to another person at any time (contact us to transfer).

Can I register on site?

For several years we have sold out quickly and have not offered registration on site. 

I want to wait to register until I’m notified about whether my proposal is accepted. What if the conference sells out before that?

We are holding one space for each accepted presentation. Acceptance notifications will include registration instructions and a deadline for presenters to register.

Are there any volunteer positions available?

Every year our amazing conference is organized and run almost exclusively by volunteers. Many volunteer positions require past EPIC experience. If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact the EPIC2020 co-chairs Tania Lewis and Alexandra Zafiroglu. Because such a large percentage of our attendees are organizers, committee members, speakers, and co-authors, most of these positions do not include complimentary or discounted conference registration. For the limited number of volunteer positions that do include complimentary registration, we prioritize currently enrolled students.

I have another question.
