ASEE Members and Stakeholders,
The ASEE Finance Committee and the Executive Committee met on April 20 to consider the registration fees for the now-virtual 2021 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition. Upon the recommendation of the Finance Committee, the Executive Committee set the early-bird member full-conference registration rate at $395, with May 31 as the early-bird deadline.
If you have made a hotel arrangement in the ASEE Block through the housing bureau, your reservation will be cancelled automatically.
If you made a hotel reservation OUTSIDE the ASEE block, you must cancel that hotel reservation directly. ASEE will not be able to cancel it for you.
It is projected that the $395 fee will be a nearly revenue-neutral rate for ASEE. Given the financial uncertainties facing the Society in the coming year, this seemed the most prudent path to take. This represents a 45% reduction over the physical meeting rate of $725 and a further reduction below the $500 rate charged for the virtual 2020 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition.
The other registration rates will be based off of the $395 rate for early-bird member registration. You can find those other rates and the registration link here.
The conference dates remain Monday, July 26 to Thursday, July 29 and the timing of sessions remains Pacific Daylight Time. As with last year, we will be using the Pathable platform, which is very user friendly, provides great opportunities for engagement, and allows for interactive Q&A periods following technical sessions and presentations. The program comprises the usual assortment of plenaries, distinguished lectures, business meetings, and opportunities to catch up with friends and colleagues.

More information will be released in the coming weeks. While we are all eager to meet again in person, we look forward to making this second (and we hope, final) virtual Annual Conference and Exposition a big success for you, our members.
Reminder that all ASEE papers are publish to present. If you are unable to attend the conference, your paper can still be published.
