To add your name, please click on this link

- LOEX members have priority on the wait list.
- If you are not certain of your membership status, please just sign up. Your membership status will be verified when registration closes and any situations are usually easily resolved.


Registration will begin on February 5, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern.

  • The online form, which is the only way to register, will be made available on this page.
  • Please be prepared to provide contact info, food preferences, and whether you plan on attending the Thursday night reception (time to be determined) at the time of registration.
  • No payment is due or asked for at the time of registration.

There is no registration deadline, but we recommend you register as soon as possible. Conference spots typically fill quickly, often within the first day (if not first few hours). A waiting list will be created if all the spots are taken; current LOEX members have priority on the waiting list. Every year we have been able to offer a spot to a good portion of the waiting list.

LOEX members have registration priority.
- If you are not certain of your membership status at the time of registration, please just register. Your status will be verified (by using your institution's name; you do not need any "membership number") when registration closes and any situations are usually easily resolved.
