Information for Pre-registration

In order to receive the pre-registration rate for GALANA 2004, you must fill-out and return the pre-registration form to us (as indicated on the form itself) by 15 November.

Download the pre-registration form:
               Form-fillable on a computer (1MB)
               To be filled out by hand (75KB)


Your payment must accompany the form.  Note that we accept checks (drawn on a US bank in US Dollars only), and for those international registrants who do not have a US bank account, we accept credit cards as a guarantee of payment.  International registrants will then pay the pre-registration fee in cash US dollars upon arriving at the conference.

Below is information that will help you fill out page 2 of the pre-registration form.

Check the box that best fits you (student, reviewer/presenter, etc.), and fill in the appropriate amount in the right-most column.

Check the box for any additional items and fill in the appropriate amounts in the right-most column.  These are:

  Shuttle to/from Waikiki:  If you are staying at a Waikiki hotel, you may want to register for this service.  Access to the university is available through the public bus system, which is relatively convenient during the week, but less so on Saturday and Sunday.  The cost of the public bus is $2 one way, and one-way taxi fare to the University may be $15-20.  We have arranged a bus each conference day for pick up in the morning and return in the evening from one Waikiki location central to all the listed conference hotels.  There will be only one pick-up time in the morning and one drop-off time in the evening.  Because space is limited, we strongly urge you to register for this as soon as possible.

 [Note:  If staying at Lincoln Hall or Hale Manoa, you do not need to register for the shuttle.]

 Lunch Boxes:  In the interest of maximizing participation in the lunch-time Poster Sessions (Saturday and Sunday), we are offering boxed lunches on each of the full days of the conference (Friday–Sunday).  The boxed lunches (prepared by a variety of local caterers) will vary each day, and a vegetarian option will be provided to those who check the corresponding box on the pre-registration form.  To help you decide whether to sign up for this, keep in mind that although there are several nearby restaurants where one may choose to have lunch, they are all approximately 15 minutes away on foot.  Additionally, all food available on campus is, unfortunately, exactly that: campus food.

 Aquarium Bash & GALANA Banquet:  See the Special Events page for more details on these evening get-togethers.  Please note that in order to encourage participation in these social events, we are offering subsidized rates to students––and a special low price to all those who register for both events.  (Tickets are available for family members and friends, too.)

 Reserve a Seat on the Shuttle to the Aquarium:  The Aquarium Bash will be held at the Waikiki Aquarium on Saturday, December 18th.  All participants (including family members and friends) who have a ticket for the Aquarium Bash and who do not have alternative transportation (e.g. rental car) are advised to sign up for the shuttle.  This shuttle will leave for the Aquarium at 6:00 pm and head back to Lincoln Hall/Hale Manoa at 9:00 pm.  This is a free service to all Aquarium Bash participants signed up for it.  The number of subscribers to this shuttle by the end of the pre-registration period (15 November) will determine the number of buses we arrange.
