Registration and Fees for the Meeting

      Registration for the meeting will be $45.00, which will cover refreshments, Internet, audio visual equipment rental and other meeting costs.  Roughly 1/10th the price of AMS registration!   If you are staying off site or are a local in Monterey, we must also collect a Use Fee that Asilomar charges for offsite users ($35).  If you are not staying at Asilomar, but would like to eat meals with the group at Asilomar, meals can be reserved and paid for ahead of time.  Your registration for the meeting and  the collection of the above fees will be through the Naval Postgraduate School Foundation using two forms found below.  One is for those staying at Asilomar and the other is for those staying off site.  Please complete these registration forms by September 20 in order for us to give Asilmar an accurate count.  All questions about registration fees should be directed to our local arrangements chair: Wendell Nuss (nuss@nps.edu, 831-656-2308).
