Location. The workshop will be held at Washington University in St. Louis.

Fees. Registration is free for PhD students and $250 for faculty. All attendees must cover their travel and hotel costs.

The workshop has a limited amount of funds available to sponsor students who demonstrate a financial hardship in paying for their travel expenses.
