Registration for 2016 is now closed. Through February 29, edit your registration with your abstract, poster information and other needs.

Guidelines for 2015–2016

There are two phases to registration:

1. Register (Jan. 15–31)

Each student presenting at the event must first register between January 15 and 31.

2. Edit your registration (Feb. 1–29)

Beginning February 1, any registered student may edit their registration to upload their abstract, indicate what size of poster they will be using and/or list audio/visual equipment needs. This second phase of registration ends February 29.

Who needs to register

Each student presenting at the Celebration must register by January 31. Even if two or more students are presenting the same project together, each student must register separately. Students who have co-authored research being presented at the Celebration, but who are not going to be at the Celebration themselves, should not register.

When to register

Each student must register online between January 15 and January 31. If you need more time to decide on a presentation format (flat poster on a display board, tri-fold poster on a table, or other format) or need more time to finalize your abstract, you can edit your registration through February 29. Presentation formats, abstracts and audio/visual needs must be submitted by February 29.

How to edit your registration to upload your abstract or provide poster size information

To edit your registration after January 31, open the confirmation email you received when you registered for the event from Hope College Events Office. Click the View Details link on the confirmation email, and then Change Reservation. After the log-in screen, click Edit Reservation in the Actions box. Use this method to upload your abstract and submit your set-up and audio/visual needs after January 31st, until February 29th.

Logging onto EMS Regics registration software

During the registration period, click the green Register box at the top of this page, or the event icon on KnowHope. Log in with your Hope College email address, including the, and enter a password. If this is your first time using EMS Regics, you can set your own password. If you have registered for another event at Hope through EMS Regics (e.g., the Celebration in previous years, the Dance Marathon 5k), your password will be the same one you used before. If you don't remember your password, you can reset it by clicking Forgot Password?. The system will generate a new password and send it to your email address.

Registering a Second Project

If you will be presenting more than one project, you will need to register both projects separately.

To submit another project, go to the registration site once more and log in with your email address (do not click Already registered?). A window will pop up with instructions to either view your past registration or create a new registration. Select Create new.
