Arrivals and check-in

If you’re registered for the first session, please arrive between 8:30 - 8:50a so that the conference can begin on time. For all other sessions, please arrive 15 minutes prior to the session. All attendees will receive a badge at check-in. Please make sure to keep it visible at all times so that security can identify you as a conference guest.

Snacks: There will be light refreshments provided throughout the day outside of the Koret Auditorium. Please do not bring food and drinks into the auditorium. Food and drinks, however, are allowed in Wilsey Court.

Happy hour: Please join us and our guest speakers on the Cafe Terrace beginning at 4:50 - 6:30p for a happy hour following the event. 


We know it’s painful to register for each individual session. But due to space limitations and to ensure full attendance for our guest speakers, we need to know how many people we can expect in the room. Please register only for the sessions that you plan on attending.


Working on-site

WiFi: The network name is FAMSF and requires no password for wifi access.

Should you need to do work or take phone calls during the conference, please try to do so during the 15-min breaks or over lunch. If this is not feasible, phone calls should be taken outside through the main entrance so as not to disturb other guests. If attendees need to be on email, personal devices can be used in Wilsey Court only. Please be mindful of other attendees when using devices.
