Where and when do I register?

A: Registration is done entirely online, and can be accessed on the side bar to the left marked “Registration”. The registration deadline for this year’s IBC is October 23, 2009 – make sure to register soon to ensure a spot!

I'm having trouble with registration. What should I do?

A: E-mail ibcinfo2009@gmail.com with questions about registration!

Is there a set number of women who can come from each college to IBC?

A: No! In fact, we’ve set up group rates to encourage groups from your college to attend IBC! That said many attendees come as individuals from their college. There is no specific maximum or minimum on attendees from any given college.

I might be the only student from my university coming to the IBC. Will there be other "single" delegates from other Universities?

A: Most definitely! Many of our attendees come as individuals from their colleges and universities, and we have designed our programming to help you foster new friendships with fellow attendees from around the world.

What are the conference fees for the IBC?

A: Priority Registration – ending September 15, 2009 - is $20 per person. Regular registration will be $20 per person for groups of 5 or more, and $30 for individuals.

I am traveling from outside of the US; are there any special “international” fees I might have to incur?

A: No! There are no international fees! We're eager to host a diverse group of undergraduate women. If you require a letter about IBC to help you obtain a visa, please e-mail us at ibcinfo2009@gmail.com.

I have more questions that weren't addressed here. Who should I talk to?
