Payment

  • All payments will be completed through Eventbrite. Payment is $15 per person (presenter or attendee)

  • Payments for self-paying presenters and for all group payments are due Monday, February 8, 2021.

  • Group payments for schools that are FURA institutional members will be eligible for a 10% discount. The discount code will be sent to institutional members to use for group payments.

  • We warmly welcome friends, family, and the general public to attend FURC 2021. If you are just attending FURC 2021, you will need to pay by Monday, February 22, 2021.

Setting up Your Profile on Whova

  • After submitting your registration and your payment, you will receive an email from Whova to complete a profile on Whova. Note: it may take a few days to receive this profile set-up email. If it has been a week or more after you have registered and paid, please contact FURC2021@fsu.edu.

  • You can access Whova via your smartphone or your computer in order to complete your profile. There is a Whova smartphone app, which you can download using the button below. You can also access the conference website on your desktop.

  • After downloading the Whova app or accessing the Whova website, you must use the same email address that you used to register/pay, as this will allow you to automatically sign into the conference. Note: it would be best to use your institutional email across all steps of the registration/payment/Whova process.

  • Presenters will receive special instructions on completing their profile, including how to upload your poster and video presentation. These instructions will be sent out closer to the conference start date, but profiles with presentation materials must be completed by Sunday, February 21, 2021.

  • Non-presenting attendees can set up their profiles any time before the conference begins, but we recommend completing your profile by Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
