Conference Policy

Registration Policy

Your registration signifies that you have read and accepted the Registration Policy as well as the Substitution, Ticket Switching, and Cancellation Policies below and that you agree to accept all emails that are specific to your registration for this event.

Registration constitutes permission to use photos, audio, and/or video footage of your voice or image captured at the event in connection with Learning Sciences International (LSI) conferences and activities, in corresponding publications, in LSI archives, or on LSI websites. However, LSI will not use your name with your associated organization in promotional materials or in testimonial statements without your prior written consent.

Substitution Policy

If a registrant is no longer able to attend, they may identify a substitute to attend in their place. Substitutions can be processed through June 1, 2021, by the original registrant. The substitution request will require the registrant to visit the Already Registered link on the conference website and to enter their registration confirmation number. There is not a fee to process substitutions. If you need assistance with switching a registration, please reach out to

Ticket Switching Policy

Attendees are not permitted to self-modify their registration to “switch tickets” from a virtual registration to an on-site registration or from an on-site registration to a virtual registration. If an attendee is wishing to cancel their on-site presence and instead attend virtual, your on-site registration will have to be cancelled and you will then have to register separately for a virtual ticket. If you are wishing to be on-site instead of your original virtual purchase, you will have to cancel your virtual ticket and separately purchase an on-site ticket.

If you choose to switch tickets, the request must be received in writing to before May 3, 2021. If you switch tickets, your original purchase will be refunded, and you will then be charged for your newly purchased tickets. For those switching ticket types, you will not be charged the $100 cancellation fee on your original ticket purchase.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation refund requests for conference registration must be received in writing via email to before May 3, 2021. For invoices that have already been paid, the refund will be processed (less a $100 cancellation processing fee) within 15 business days of the written cancellation request. For invoices that have not yet been paid, the $100 cancellation fee is due within 15 business days of the written cancellation request. A $100 processing fee will be assessed per registrant on all refund requests.

Requests for refunds will not be honored after May 3, 2019. Cancellation refund requests received after May 3, 2019, will not receive a refund of the registration fee and will remain liable for full payment. Refunds are not granted for failure to attend, late arrival, unattended events, or early departure. LSI is not responsible for weather-related cancellations or for airfare, hotel, or other costs associated with the conference if the registrant is unable to attend.

The conference is subject to cancellation or change. Liability is limited to funds remitted for conference registration. Speakers are subject to change without prior notice. LSI encourages registrants to process a substitution to attend in their place to avoid a cancellation fee.

LSI reserves the right to cancel any registration, at any time, for any reason that is not suitable to the conference. If your registration is cancelled, you will be issued a refund up to the full price that you have paid for conference registration. You will not be reimbursed for travel or other charges that arise due to LSI cancelling the registration.
