REGISTRATION IS OPEN. CLICK HERE. 

There are variety of registration categories, at various price levels. There will also be some limited financial assistance  (see the section below).

Registration (in all categories) gains you entry to all the Tuesday-Thursday regular sessions and the Friday field trips, break coffee and tea, lunch, and access to the Networking Cafes (where there will be light food and drinks). (Field trips require an additional €12 for a bag lunch.)

**Now closed** NSF-related travel grants:  TNOC and the University of Utah anticipate having money from the US National Science Foundation to fully fund the travel of 14 people to TNOC Summit. To apply for this money, (1) you must be based in the United States (but you don’t have to be a US national); and (2) your work must relate to urban ecosystems. “Urban ecosystems” can be broadly interpreted, and we are interested in applications from scientists, practitioners, policy people, and artists. We encourage applications from people from demographics that are under-represented in urban ecosystem science and practice. To apply, write [email protected] with NSF in the subject line. In the body, include: (1) you name and affiliation; (2) brief bio (<50 words); (3) why your ecosystem-related practice makes you want to attend TNOC Summit. We’ll start reviewing applications 15 April.

Registration categories

Super Early Bird:  €300
[Now closed.] Open to everyone, but available only through 31 January 2019, to a limit of 100 people (whichever comes first). Other than students, this is the least expensive registration category.

Global South: €350 (after 7 April 2019: €425)
If you live and work in the Global South, choose this category (unless you are choosing “Super Early Bird”). For the purposes of defining “north” and “south”, we use this list.

Global North: €400 (after 7 April 2019: €500)
If you live and work in the Global South, choose this category (unless you are choosing “Super early Bird”). For the purposes of defining “north” and “south”, we use this list.

Student: €225 (after 7 April 2019: €350)
Full time undergraduate or graduate student. There is also a free option, if you give us a little work. (See the Financial Assistance section.)

Last minute: €550 
After 1 June, all registrations will be at the “last minute” price.

Cancelation policy:
Super Early Bird: 90% of payment refunded if canceled by 29 January 2019; not refundable after 29 January. (The more strict cancelation policy for this category is because there are a limited number of seats—we don’t want them to be consumed and then canceled, preventing others from using the category.)
Early Bird (North or South): 80% of payment refunded if canceled by 1 May 2019; not refundable after 1 May.
Student: 80% of payment refunded if canceled by 1 May 2019; not refundable after 1 May.
Last minute: No refunds are possible.

Financial assistance

There will be some financial assistance available, but the amount is limited, and will depend on our fund raising. 
If you would like to apply for travel assistance, write us here: [email protected], with “TRAVEL” in the subject line.
Include in the email:
  • Where you live
  • A short bio (<100 words)
  • Why you’d like to attend the Summit
  • Whether you could attend with partial help (such as reduced registration) or would require all your expenses to be paid
Decisions on financial assistance will emphasize financial need, people from the Global South, practitioners, and diversity. There will also be some assistance in specific categories (based on the particular source of the money). (By the way, we also are being affected by the U.S. government shutdown, as it is delaying some significant sources of funding.)
We also offer free registration to students who are willing to give us a day of work at the Summit. If you are interested in this option, write us at [email protected], and put WORK in the subject line. Include in the email:
  • Where you live
  • A short bio (<100 words)
  • What languages you speak comfortably
