If you are interested in attending the conference, please make sure you are signed up for our newsletter.
We will announce ticket sales at the end of summer.

This form is for prospective presenters, vendors and sponsors. Though we hope to select as many applicants as we possibly can, space is limited, and the committee will select the applicants most aligned with the goals of the conference.

The conference will be held Saturday, October 14, 8.30am-4pm at Stanford University, Li Ka Shing Center. It will feature both presentations in classrooms AND a resource fair. We also welcome sponsors for the event.
