We have three days of workshops (Tuesday-Thursday), two days of Symposium (Friday and Saturday), and evening events on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday! We also have a number of exciting news - read this page for details before you proceed to register for The 2019 Mesoamerica Meetings.
Our biggest news is that, in addition to our new website, we have a brand new system for registration! We hope that these updates will make signing up for the Meetings a much improved experience, and we look forward to welcoming you in Austin in January!
Registration categories and Fees: The registration fees vary by registration category: in addition to registration for our Regular Attendees, we have discounts: for students of other schools and universities; for students, faculty, and staff at UT Austin, and - new this year - we are able to extend discounts to those who are residents in Latin America and traveling to join us in Austin! Please note before you begin registration that for UT Austin affiliates with current UTEIDs and for residents of Latin American countries, the registration system will ask you to upload a document as proof of your selected registration status before you proceed. Have an image of your ID or a document with your address ready before you begin!
Foreign credit cards: Among the good news this year, we are also happy to report that our new system can process credit cards for billing addresses in the US as well as in foreign countries. We hope this improvement helps those of you who join us from abroad!
Early Bird Discounts: Other good news is that this year we are able to offer a discounted Early Bird Price to all catergories of attendees who register before Monday November 26th, 2018! Discounted prices are $10 off for each workshop and for the Symposium. We hope you'll take advantage of this new feature!
Boxed Lunches: Last year we tested the possibility of adding the option to pre-order boxed lunches for the Symposium. We have included those in this year's registration options as well! Spend your Symposium lunch break with colleagues and friends, leave the car parked, and don't worry about finding a walking distance café and returning in time for the afternoon talks! Instead, you can opt to purchase a lunch (either meat or vegetarian) for Friday and Saturday, and enjoy the convenience of a picnic box with a delicious main course, fresh mixed berries, cookie, and water bottle or soda. Sandwiches additionally come with a side of pasta salad, and salads with a mini-baguette. Your pre-orders will be available for pick up on the day of the event; please note that we will not have any additional lunches to sell beyond the ones pre-ordered through the registration site. Pre-orders for boxed lunches close on January 6th.
Other Optional Items: We also have several other optional items you can take home to build your own collection of mementos from The Mesoamerica Meetings.
T-Shirts: Conference t-shirts will be available for pre-order by December 20th. A limited number of t-shirts will also be available at the Symposium but we cannot guarantee that your size will be available, and we cannot accept payment through cards suring the conference (cash or checks only). If you wish to have your own (or more than one!) navy blue, cotton t-shirt with a David Stuart drawing from a page of the Codex Magliabechiano. Make sure to select size and quantities at the registration website.
Tote Bags and Cards: There you will also be able to choose to add a sturdy cotton tote bag for your books or groceries, and select one (or both!) sets of note cards featuring the textiles of the Art and Art History Collection at UT Austin. Pre-order closes December 20th.
