The registration page is now up and working. Please sign in as directed and navigate your way through the system to pay your conference fees, register for the workshops, join the Society for the Study of the Short Story (SSSS), and book your room at the Conference Hotel, the Guoman Hotel. Conference fees for any accompanying guests, spouses, or friends are the same as those for participants, since the fees will cover all conference materials, coffee breaks, meals (lunch and dinner), plus banquet for the length of the conference. There are no partial or individuated fees.The deadlines for fee payment listed on the website will be maintained. Those participants in want of a letter of invitation to secure a visa must pay fees prior to making this request. Conference rates at the hotel are the same at least three days before and three days after the conference, should some participants plan an extended stay. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the director at firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to seeing you in Shanghai, China, at East China Normal University (ECNU), our first conference venue in Asia.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Please remember that the conference begins at 10:00 am on the morning of July 13th; so it you live outside of Shanghai, you should plan on arriving at the Guoman Hotel on the day before, July 12th. Also, the Workshops are held on the day before the conference, on July12th. If you are taking the workshops you should arrive at the hotel on the 11th of July.They begin at 10:00. I apologize for this extended note, but dime participants did not know this information at our last conference and they missed their sessions because of this lack of information, SEE YOU AT SHANGHAI!!!!
