What is included in your registration

Registration gives you access to all Networks 2021 preconference and main activities (not including workshops) between June 21 and July 10, and the ability to review recorded sessions for at least one month after the conference closes AND complimentary annual membership to the Network Science Society (through June 2022) and membership to the International Network of Social Network Analysis through Dec 31, 2021.

How we reached our fee schedule

The total budget for this conference is somewhere around $172k (not including workshop income, which is largely a pass-through) and is being subisdized by local IUNI and a few select sponsors. Sixty percent of the conference expenses are going directly to the two societies in lieu of charging any membership fees. Both societies rely on membership/conference income to keep their operations running. About 14% of expenses relate to registration fee collection, and the remaining 26% is conference software costs (Whova and OpenConf) and staffing the live sessions with events personnel to ensure they run smoothly. Both societies wished to keep fees for students and scholars from low-resource institutions as low as possible, and we have worked hard to contain costs to do so.
