What’s the difference between "application" and "registration"?
You apply to attend a CUWiP conference, the CUWiP leadership directs you to a site, the site reviews your application, and you are accepted or declined according to the priorities listed on this webpage.
After you have been accepted, you will need to register to confirm that you will actually be attending and provide specifics, such as special accommodations and dietary restrictions.
