Conference proceedings will be available to full congress registrants and will be available for purchase following the congress.  Manuscripts are required for technical presentations.  Manuscripts should be between 4 - 15 pages.  See WFC 13 Proceeding paper template & instructions.  Please also view the proceedings paper sample.

Conference Registration, Hotel Reservations, and Travel

Speakers are given a reduced conference registration fee and are required to register for the congress.  Registration is open.  Register by the regular registration deadline of Saturday, August 6 to avoid paying a higher registration fee. 

All congress activities will take place at the beautiful Hilton Bayfront in San Diego.  Please be aware of unauthorized hotel booking agents.  No one from the WFC 13 or AFS office will call you to make your reservations.  There are companies that are doing this - do not book your room through these agents as they are a scam.  Book your hotel reservation through the official hotel reservation link only.
