Presenter Registration Policy

GSCA places a high value on the skill and expertise of its presenters, and views their participation as integral to the success of the conference. GSCA strongly encourages presenters to attend and participate for the entirety of the conference. As such, all presenters are required to register for the conference. The Content Chair may grant waivers in this policy if the request and rationale is received by the Early Bird registration deadline.

Individuals who have not registered and paid for the conference, or submitted an appeal to the Content Chair, by the Early Bird registration deadline are subject to removal from the conference schedule.

Additionally, Presenters who do not show up for their scheduled session and do not provide notification to the Content Chair or President may be subject to barring from future programs.
