Tutorial Availablity

Last day for reduced rates: Thursday, 26 September 2002

Last day to advance register: Thursday, 17 October 2002

To qualify for reduced rates, registration forms must be sent by 26 September 2002 – that is, sent online, faxed, or postmarked by that date. The last date to advance register by fax, mail, or online is 17 October 2002. After that, you can register only at the Conference. Registration forms must be accompanied by full payment in order to be processed. Incorrect credit card numbers and declined credit are considered no payment and registration will not occur. In past years, OOPSLA Tutorials have sold out very early. It is strongly recommended that you register well in advance of the 26 September 2002 deadline. Heavy fax traffic is expected on that day, and OOPSLA cannot be responsible for forms not received due to busy phone lines.

No telephone registrations will be accepted.

Payment information

    Payment in U. S. dollars may be made by personal or company check, money order, or credit card.

    Mailed checks must be payable to OOPSLA 2002.

    Faxed and online registrations must be paid by credit card.

    Purchase orders, government vouchers, wire transfers, telephone or electronic mail registrations will not be accepted.

    International payment must be by credit card, International Money Order, or drafts drawn against a U.S. bank account.

Cancellations made in writing and faxed or postmarked by 17 October 2002 will be accepted subject to a $50 cancellation fee. Refunds will be made within four weeks of the end of the conference. Cancellations will not be accepted after 17 October 2002. “No-shows” are not refundable and are liable for the full registration fee. Instead of canceling, your registration may be transferred by giving a colleague a written authorization. Conference materials (Proceedings, Tutorial Notes, etc.) which are not picked up at the conference, will not be shipped to the registrant after the conference.

Please note that seating priority will be reserved to confirmed Stu-dent Volunteers, and tutorial lunches are not included in the student fees.

    Students wishing to guarantee seating in tutorials may purchase seats at the regular rates published for ACM members and non-members.

    Panel participants, Session Chairs, and Speakers must register and
