It is the policy of AERA that all persons in attendance at the 2014 AERA Annual Meeting and Exhibition, including participants who plan to attend one or more sessions, are required to register. This includes presenters, invited speakers, chairs, and discussants. Registration is not transferable.

Registration allows the individual to attend all invited symposia and sessions, grants admission to the AERA Exhibit Hall, and provides the opportunity to purchase tickets to attend any of the AERA Professional Development extended courses and mini-courses, as well as tour tickets and events.

In order to qualify for the AERA member rate, your membership must be current through 2014. This means that if your membership expires in December 2013, you must renew your membership for 2014 at the time or prior to the time of registration in order to qualify for the member rate. Adjustments and/or refunds for registration fees will not be given to individuals who register at the non-member rate and later join AERA.

Registration and housing must be done simultaneously. Once you complete your registration, your registration summary will include a link to make an online hotel reservation. In addition, your AERA membership must be current through 2014 in order to receive the discounted AERA rate. The link can be accessed from the online registration summary screen or the email registration confirmation. In the online registration Summary screen, select the button “Hotel Reservations” that appears in the upper left side of the screen. In the email confirmation, select the link “Hotel Reservations” in the upper right side of the email.

Registration Information and Policies

AERA Registration Customer Service
Changes to your registration can be made online by logging in to your registration. For additional registration assistance, please contact Registration Support at email: or phone: (800) 893-7950 or (484) 751-5136.

Badges must be worn to gain admission to all events, including sessions, tours, and the Exhibit Hall. All attendees that pre-register will use express pass registration and pick their badge up on-site. AERA will not mail badges in advance. You will need to print your registration confirmation with bar code and bring it on-site to have your badge printed. In addition to the badge, the Annual Meeting Program and Program Supplement (if you opted to receive these), and a badge holder may also be picked on-site. Once on-site, there will be a $5 replacement fee for lost badges.

Guest Registration
Guest registration is designed for the spouse, partner, or family members of the registrant. Guests may visit the exhibits and attend the session(s) in which the registrant is presenting. Guest registration is not applicable for professionals (including students) in the field of education research who will be attending sessions or presenting papers. Guest registration must be included as part of the registration of another individual. Only one guest is allowed per registrant. Guest badges will not include the guest’s institutional affiliation and “Guest” will be clearly noted on the badge.

Registration Payment
Registration fees may be charged to American Express, MasterCard, or VISA. Purchase orders are not accepted as payment. Make checks for registration payable to AERA Registration Bureau in U.S. dollars, drawn on a U.S. bank. No registration or housing request will be processed without applicable payment.

Registration fees and/or Professional Development course fees will be refunded, less a $25 service charge, if a written request is received at the AERA Registration Bureau by February 20, 2014. Written requests can be e-mailed to or faxed to (866) 518-9751. There is a $5 service charge for tour participant cancellations; the remainder of the tour fee will be refunded if a written request is received at the AERA Registration Bureau by February 20, 2014. AERA regrets that refunds for registration, Professional Development courses, and tours will not be made after February 20, 2014. It is the policy of AERA that registration is not transferable.

Print Program and Go Green Initiative
