Registration Information


Due to space constraints, the Lilly Conference is limiting attendees to the first 550 registrants, and therefore, we encourage you to register for the conference early. Once the Conference reaches 550 attendees, registrations will be closed. Please contact the Lilly Conference Registrar to be added to a waiting list.

Live-Stream Attendance

For those unable to attend the Conference in person: An invitation to participate in select Lilly Conference sessions virtually!

Whether you're interested in "testing the waters" at the Lilly Conference or simply don't have adequate travel funding, the live-streaming sessions are a great way to participate remotely in the Conference. For a low flat rate, this registration option provides you with access to over 10 hours of Lilly Conference sessions. You'll be provided with a URL to watch the sessions live, as well as access to the session recordings for 6 months following the Conference. Watch the sessions in your office or home, or invite other faculty members to watch as a campus seminar.

To register for the live-stream/video archive option, visit the URL below. If you are interested in purchasing the video archive as a supplement to your on-site registration, select the appropriate option during the registration process.
