To Join or Renew your membership CLICK HERE, then return to this form when finished.


RECORDINGS

Recordings (audio/video) will enable you to experience or re-experience all the sessions that are recorded (most all lectures, symposia and panels).  Recorded sessions will be available for viewing for up to a year after the conference. You can pre-reserve recording access either by registering for the full conference (for which recordings are included) or if you are a partial registrant by purchasing one with your registration or at the conference registration desk.

Registrants who pay for the full conference including Volunteers as well as approved Staff, and Keynotes or Invited presenters: recordings included – $0
Partial Registrants – Single Day, Scholarships and others not paying full conference fee and other special comp ’ed registrations – $40 (€ 36 )  

MEALS

Breakfast

A “lavish” breakfast buffet for those lodging at Rolduc is included in your room rate.   For those not staying at Rolduc, breakfast can be purchased separately and directly from Rolduc for € 15.50. Instructions pending.

Lunch Buffet

To fully enjoy the gathering of like-minded dreamers, a tasty variety of foods, and make it to you next sessions on time, it is highly recommended for you to purchase lunch buffet tickets. Buffet selections are extensive and accommodate special diets – including meat, vegetarian/vegan and gluten free entrées on the buffet itself plus plated special dietary selections when pre-ordered. Also, the price is consistent with the area and there are no nearby restaurants, the closest being in Kerkrade, over a 1-mile (1.6km) walk from the Abbey.

Packaged Meal  for Monday Hike

Join us on Monday 10 June for an exciting 2-hour German/Dutch Frontier Hike planned during the free time and dinner break at around 18:00.  A packaged meal with drink can be pre-reserved for $17 (€ 15). It will contain 2 sandwiches (choice of meat, vegetarian/cheese or vegan/hummus), two rolls/small subs (in Dutch: belegde broodjes), fruit such as an apple or pear, fruit yoghurt, a boiled egg and a bottle of water.  There is likely no further special dietary options. Since that evening it is “dinner on your own” (no buffet) you may want to purchase this anyway if you just want a light snack or wish to picnic on the grounds during free time, or don’t otherwise want to make it into town.

Dinner Buffet

A dinner buffet is served on two or the conference evenings, Sunday 9 June and Tuesday 11 June, when the conference schedule is tight with evening keynotes. On the other evenings we have provided 2½ hour to 3-hour breaks for you to dine on your own in nearby Kerkrade.

Special Diet or Allergy?  Rolduc has stated that they will mark all of the dietary categories on the buffet. If you have a special dietary need or allergy beyond those listed, you can specify it in the comments box provided in the Dietary Selections item before you click the PROCEED button.  We respectfully ask that you only specify actual needs rather than preferences – please be courteous to our IASD volunteers as well as the Rolduc staff who have to manage the process.

Deadlines: Note that the DEADLINE for pre-ordering meals and special meal orders is 22 May 2024.

  Lunch Buffet 4-day Package: $99 (€ 90 ) – 4 days total package Sunday through Wednesday
Lunch Buffet single day: $27 (€ 25) – Daily Friday through Wednesday
Dinner Buffet single evening: $44 (€ 39.90) –  Sunday and Tuesday, 9 and 11 June
Packaged Meal for Hike – $17 (€ 15) –  Monday 10 June

CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE)

CE Credits for selected sessions are provided for those that register for them. IASD is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. IASD maintains responsibility for this program and its content. Receiving CE Credit requires that the attendees sign in and evaluate each session. This will be done all electronically so that sign-in, evaluations and certificate receipt is all done on your computer or smart phone or pad. Instructions will be provided to all CE applicants.

 Processing Fee for CE Credits if desired:  $30 (€ 27)

ARTIST EXHIBITORS

The 2024 IASD conference will include a Juried Dream Art Exhibition that invites local artists, as well as artists who attend the conference from around the world, to participate. Artists are encouraged to submit original artwork about or inspired by their nighttime dreams.

To apply, look for a separate Call for Art Submissions accompanied by a separate Art Exhibit Submission form (to be announced and posted on the conference website) with a 15 March 2024 due date for submissions.  All Art Submissions (except for those artists who have paid and registered to attend the conference) will require a non-refundable entry fee of $40 (€ 36) per artist, payable on that separate online form at the time of submission.  For artists who register and pay the conference fee using the forms herein (full conference, single day or volunteer) the art entry fee is waived.  NOTE:. If you registered early for the conference and none of your art is accepted, and you notify us within 7 days of receiving a non-acceptance notice that you no longer wish to attend, you will receive a refund, less the art entry fee.

ARE YOU REGISTERING A COMPANION AS WELL?

If you have a companion or family member who is attending the conference sessions and events, they must also register for the conference on a separate registration form.  If your companion is  not attending the conference, we have provided the ability to add a second meal to your registration form for them (select ‘2’ in the drop-down box for that meal).  Also, when you make your lodging reservations with Abbey Hotel Rolduc, most lodging rooms have a rate for a double which provides 2 beds and 2 breakfasts (per day). 

COMMENTS AND SPECIAL REQUESTS

The registration form has a box for adding comments and special requests. Although IASD will do its best to meet special requests, it is not always practical or possible to do so. We will attempt to notify you of the status of your requests. Note that we are making efforts to provide special seating accommodation for those who have limited sight or hearing or need wheelchair access, so let us know if you have those needs in order that we can plan properly. If you have a specific question regarding facility access, you may contact the Abbey Hotel Rolduc.


LODGING

Make Your Lodging Reservations Directly with the Hotel. The conference center, Abbey Hotel Rolduc – is the best lodging choice for discounted rooms and for ease in getting to the conference events on time, but reserve early since our room block is limited. The block is 125 rooms (most of which can be reserved as singles or doubles) with additional rooms on a space-available basis. Most rooms are priced from € 63 to € 93 per night including breakfast (from economy with shared bath to those with a bath in room). The discounted block of rooms is only for conference registrants. Therefore when you register for the conference your registration confirmation email will contain a Booking Code and instructions which you would use to reserve a room at Abbey Hotel Rolduc. 

Go to the Lodging link on the conference welcome page for reservation instructions, prices, hotel and room descriptions and other information.
