Registration is Already Filled
Due to high demand and interest for participation at the WiCyS 2019 Annual Conference, the registration process is controlled to ensure an optimal ratio of participation of students, educators and industry professionals. We regret that registration has reached its capacity.
NOTE: The Conference-negotiated rooms are sold out at the Wyndham Hotel. WiCyS has negotiated a limited number of additional rooms at the nearby Fairmont Hotel. Please book through this link.
Additional nearby hotels include the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel and the Hilton Garden Inn, and there are several others within walking distance.
Please Note: Students wishing to attend the WiCyS Conference are not able to do so through public registration, even if they have signed up to join WiCyS as members. Due to capacity constraints, WiCyS provides scholarships to 500+ students to attend. Schools and universities that are sponsoring the WiCyS Conference also have an allocation of student registrants through which students may attend. Other than that, WiCyS regrets that this year we have reached capacity of student registrations.
Membership has its Benefits! Conference registration fees are discounted for WiCyS members. To become a WiCyS member, simply follow the instructions and submit the form on this page.
