ARE YOU A CURRENT UT AUSTIN UNDERGRADUATE OR GRADUATE STUDENT?

If so, you can attend The 2024 Mesoamerica Meetings in person free of charge! However, since the conference center has limited capacity, you still need to register to reserve your space. Please contact our organizing committee by emailing Milady Casco, who will ask for your UT EID and other necessary information to enter you in the registration system and waive the fees. We still encourage you to explore the registration site to decide what events you would like to attend. Conference events (workshops and symposium) have fixed capacity, so when seats fill up they will show as sold out. Please keep this in mind and contact us no later than January 5th as we cannot guarantee availability of spaces.
