Stoa Membership Registration

In order to register for NITOC 2019, you must be a Stoa member. When you register, this website will automatically cross-check your Stoa membership registration to ensure that you are eligible for NITOC 2019. (The name you register under must be formatted exactly the same way for both websites. If this is not done, you will endure the frustrating experience of software limitations trying to convince you that the system cannot recognize your registration.)

Scripts must be submitted by SATURDAY, MAY 4th at 11:59pm PST. There will be NO on-site script submission. Failure to submit scripts on time will result in being dropped from the event. See the SUBMISSION TAB for details.
