If you have already registered for the conference and you now want to register a companion (Spouse/Domestic Partner), follow the same process. Mouse over the REGISTRATION tab above and click on the NEW REGISTRATION item.

Modifying Existing Registrations

If you have already registered and want to make changes or add items, mouse over the REGISTRATION tab above and click on the ATTENDEE SERVICE CENTER item. You will need to log in using the UserID and Password that were sent to you in your registration confirmation email message.

When the schedule of optional sales items is complete, including all meals, the Gala Banquet, and computer workshops, the registration form will be updated. Then you may use the ATTENDEE SERVICE CENTER to edit your record to select and to pay for those events.

Registration Types

We are offering two types of registration. You will be asked to select one of these options to start.

  • Full Conference (Primary, Spouse/Domestic Partner, Student)
  • Daily Conference (one or two days)

Primary registrants, including students, will receive a tote bag with, among other things, the Daily Planner. Spouse/Domestic Partner and Daily registrants will receive the Daily Planner, but not a tote bag.

Companions are allowed at no charge, but they must register and wear a Conference name tag.

Payment Methods

Credit Card

We expect most fees to be paid by credit card using the registration system.

Some people worry about using a credit card online. From what we have read, this worry is generally not well founded; online credit-card processing is generally safer than in-person processing. Internet systems generally protect credit-card information much more carefully than in hand-to-hand transactions. While there have been online security breaches, most credit-card fraud arises in other ways. In addition, most credit cards include complete coverage against fraudulent charges.


If, for some reason, you cannot use or do not want to use a credit card, payments may be made by check. However, please observe the note in the following box.


  • If you plan to pay by check, please do not submit the registration form until you are ready to mail the check to the Conference treasurer.
  • If we do not receive the check within one week, we may cancel the registration or the optional items ordered.
  • To take advantage of special pricing, the check must be received by the treasurer prior to the cut-off date.

Checks should be made payable to “IAJGS Philadelphia 2021” and sent to:

Douglas Cohen
IAJGS Philadelphia 2021 Treasurer
18 Lois Lane
Lexington, MA 02420

Spouse/Domestic Partner Definition

The reduced “Spouse/Domestic Partner” registration fee applies only for spouses and domestic partners who reside in the same household. It does not apply for roommates, siblings, parents, children, or other relatives of the primary registrant, even if they live in the same household. The Conference reserves the right to verify the status of anyone registering in this category.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

The cancellation policy this year is very simple. You may cancel for a full refund through June 30, 2021. Starting July 1, there will be no refunds for any reason.


We regret if illness, family emergency, or other reasons prevent you from participating in some or all of the conference. However, we incur obligations to others based upon your registration and additional fee items.


If you want to add any of the fee-based items to your existing registration, see the instructions in the Update Instructions item under the REGISTRATION tab. Note that the online registration system will close on Friday, July 23, 2021, at 11:59 pm CDT. You may add or change meal reservations via the ATTENDEE SERVICE CENTER through that date. However, no refunds will be made on or after July 1, 2021.
