What you need to know

You just need to bring yourself, your laptop, and whatever you plan on wearing. You will get your own dorm room complete with linens, pillow, blanket and towels so you don't have to worry about hauling that stuff with you. We'll also be supplying food, drinks, and fun atmosphere. If you have a particular board game or card game that you would like to bring please do so... we can only guarantee that we'll have the equipment needed to play Artemis.

What does it cost?

Tickets are $150 all-inclusive; a big thank you to our sponsors for offsetting the cost of registration! Registration includes room, board, linens, pillows, towels, swag, and all food (contact us with any dietary restrictions). Preparing food is considered a team building exercise so all meals, as well as clean up after meals, will be done by teams.

Anything else?

Even though the conference runs from July 31st through August 2nd, attendees are welcome to arrive on July 30th and stay through August 3rd. Make a vacation out of it! (Or buy the cheaper plane tickets.) Please indicate on the pre-registration form we mailed out if you will be coming early/staying late so we can ensure room and board!
