ACC Policy On Registration and Paper Upload

The Member registration rate is limited to members of the American Automatic Control Council societies (AIAA, AIChE, ASCE, ASME, IEEE, ISA, SCS, and SIAM). Life members of AACC societies are not entitled to further reductions in conference registration rates.

One Member or Non-Member registration at the advance registration rate must be paid by one of the authors of an accepted paper before the final version of the paper can be uploaded for presentation at the conference and inclusion in the conference proceedings. Further, each Member or Non-Member registration allows the registrant to upload a maximum of four (4) papers. Each additional paper upload (beyond 4) requires an additional payment of $200.

The Student registration rate is restricted for those attendees who, at the time of registration or initial submission, are full-time students at a recognized educational institution. Student registrants should bring evidence of full-time student status to the conference. Note that papers cannot be uploaded with Student registrations.

The Retiree registration rate is restricted for those attendees who, at the time of registration, are retired or do not hold full-time employment. Note that papers cannot be uploaded with Retiree registrations.
