April Report

Registration is open for DH2024! To register for the conference, you will need to complete two steps:

  1. Log into the ConfTool for DH2024 and fill out the registration form. Participants who created an account to submit a proposal should use the account. You will be able to edit your free registration add-ons (swag, workshops, tours) even after you submit your registration.
  2. Pay for your registration through GMU’s Mason Marketplace. The link is provided to you within the ConfTool system and in the ConfTool confirmation email.

After you register, you will still be able to log back into ConfTool to edit some aspects of your registration, such as adding and dropping workshops, noting whether you plan to attend the opening registration, opting in or out of the conference swag bag, and adding or dropping tours. Please do update your registration as needed, to ensure that we have accurate numbers for planning purposes. In particular, some of the tours only allow for a restricted number of participants–if you end up being unable to attend, modifying your registration will open up that space for someone else.

The fully scheduled conference program is expected to become available in late May. In the meantime, you can still visit our website to see the general outline of the program, information on our three keynote speakers, and a list of the pre-conference workshops.

As you make you travel plans, be sure to check out our website pages on accessibility, transportation and accommodations to help you figure out how to get to and where to stay in the area. Of the two official conference hotels, the Hilton Arlington hotel block is already open for registrations and the conference rate is good for August 6-10th. This hotel is right on top of a metro stop and the closest hotel to campus. The Holiday Inn Arlington at Ballston hotel block will open soon, with extra days. It is slightly further away but at a lower rate.

We will once again be using the WHOVA conference app, which will become available for registered attendees in June.
