2013 ESRI User Conference Complimentary Registration request

2013 ESRI User Conference

This year's ESRI User Conference (once again in sunny San Diego, California) is coming soon. Dates are:

July 6-9, 2013 (Educational Conference)
July 8-12, 2013 (General Conference)

Educational institution attendees who are registered for the General UC can attend the Educational UC at no additional cost.

The Washington State Institutions of Public Higher Education (WIPHE) site license gives us 16 seats, as apportioned below:

Institution Seats
Community College 2
UW 3

If you are from anywhere other than those institutions listed above, please do not fill out this form. Your request will be ignored, and you will be wasting your time.

These seats cover only the cost of the conference registration. Attendees are responsible for all other arrangements (travel, lodging, and food). Reserve your hotel room early! Hotels close to the conference center fill up very quickly. You may want to reserve a room as soon as possible in order to get a good location or government rate. Just make sure you can get a refund if you are not selected to attend or you need to cancel if you are selected to attend.

Educational registration fee is $495 for the full week if you are not selected to use one of the complimentary seats.

Please read the registration FAQ from ESRI before you proceed.

We want to see that all of these seats get used. If one institution does not use all their seats, we may shuffle them to different institutions as we approach the deadline.

To request a seat, fill out the form below. You will receive an e-mail message confirming your request. Selections will be based on your utility to Washington State Public Higher Education. You will be notified by e-mail when selections are completed. If you are selected, you will be contacted for a final confirmation that you intend to use the registration.

Request deadline for 1st round of selections: April 1, 2013. Priority for selections will be given to those who are presenting papers and/or who support the most users at their respective institutions.

Unless you are a student, use your "official" institutional address rather than gmail, hotmail, etc. so we can verify your standing.
If you are a student, include the name of your advisor (who can vouch for your eligibility). If you do not provide this information you will not be considered for a seat.
If you are a student, include your faculty advisor's official e-mail address. Do not use gmail, hotmail, etc. addresses.
