Due to space limitations, WiCyS 2019 implements controlled registration.  We are limited to 1000 attendees at the 2019 conference.   To ensure success of the conference we control registration to be approximately 50% students, 25% educators and researchers, and 25% industry professionals.  The educators/researchers/professionals are critical for the success of the job/graduate school fair.  This is why we cannot accept every student who wants to attend. 

There are four ways for a student to attend:

  • Receive a scholarship to attend (deadline to apply is November 1st)
  • Be part of a school's sponsored contingent (sponsorships available until sold out)
  • Submit a proposal and have it accepted for a talk, panel, birds of a feather, or student poster (submissions now open except student posters which will open December 1st).
  • Be the WiCyS Student Chapter leader selected to attend (each chapter can register one student)

We encourage you to pursue all these options. 

Now that WiCyS has grown to an organization, we require scholarship applicants to be members of the organization.  However, for the remainder of this year you can become a member at no charge. By submitting a scholarship application you will automatically become a member unless you decline.
