SiWC 2020 Registration is now open!

You will be directed to our secure payment website

The pandemic has made this a difficult year for many. We will be offering a pay-what-you-can option when you register for SiWC at Home to ensure no one who wants to attend is unable to do so because of finances.

Registration will be limited (not quite as much as the in-person conference) to help us achieve the sense of community that’s such an important part of SiWC.

Our price for this year, as ever, is set to cover our costs. It’s lower than you’re used to because some of our costs are lower, such as not having to pay for the hotel.
