Due to the incredible generosity of our sponsors, most attendees will receive
scholarships. Their room and all the food and drinks for the conference are
included in the scholarship.


Your registration covers a shared hotel room. You can request a particular
roommate during registration, or you can make a general request for a someone of
the same rank or from the same school. You will be notified about your roommate
a week or so before the event, so that you can get acquainted. (A limited number of
single rooms are available for an additional charge.)

What to bring

  • The conference dress code is “casual” for all events, including the Friday night party (yes, there will be a party!). Dress comfortably. Layers are a good idea since meeting rooms are usually too warm for some, and too cool for others.
  • Bring a laptop if you have one (but don’t worry if you don’t have one). There’s free wireless networking at the resort.
  • If you are awarded a scholarship, OCWiC is paying for your room and all the food and drinks for the conference. However, if you think you might like to buy souvenirs from the gift shop or use the phone in your room, you might want to consider bringing extra spending money or a credit card.
