Registration Information

On-line registration is preferred and highly recommended. Electronic registrations must include complete credit card information.

Special member rates for registration are available to members of any of the sponsoring societies. If you are not a current member of either ASLO or NABS and would like to join either society or both, please go to:

ASLO: http://aslo.org/information/benefits.html
NABS: http://www.benthos.org/About-NABS/ About-NABS-Membership.aspx

Note: You may also join either or both societies directly from the on-line meeting registration form.

Every attempt has been made to allow secure transmissions of your credit card information and transaction, but ASLO and the organizers assume no liability for your credit card information when it is released electronically. All credit card transactions will be processed through the conference web site. Transactions are protected and encrypted using a secure socket layer (SSL) certificate provided by VeriSign, Inc. SSL technology is the industry-standard method for protecting web communications. The SSL security protocol provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity, and optional client authentication for a TCP/IP (internet) connection. Credit card verification and debit services will be provided by Authorize.net, a leading provider of Internet-based transaction services with thousands of online and traditional business customers around the world.
