Conference Policies

ATTENDANCE AND PAYMENT POLICY: All registration fees must be paid in U.S. Dollars. It is a strict policy that only U.S. Government employees may submit training authorization forms in lieu of prepayment. Our Federal ID Number is 45-4292400.

Access to any session or program that requires payment will not be guaranteed unless full payment is received by DATAVERSITY two business days or more prior to the start of your scheduled tutorial day. Your registration is not considered “confirmed” until full payment is received, so if there are limitations on session capacity, then seats taken by unconfirmed registrants will be replaced by confirmed registrants. If you need to make special payment arrangements different from these stated terms, please email

CONFIRMATION: Registrations will be confirmed by email. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact

SPECIAL NEEDS: DATAVERSITY supports the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you require special assistance, please call 310-337-2616 x1.

CANCELLATION POLICY: There is no cancellation penalty fee for the FREE Conference Program. All other event policies apply. For Tutorials: All cancellation requests must be made in writing by emailing Cancellations made up to two business days prior to the start of your scheduled tutorial day will be subject to a 10% fee, to cover nonrefundable credit card fees and administrative expenses. Cancellation requests received less than two business days before your scheduled tutorial day will not be entitled to a refund, nor will confirmed registrants who do not attend and do not cancel in writing. However, access to the recorded tutorial will be provided approximately two weeks after the event begins. 

REGISTRATION CUTOFF: You can register for the free program at any time. However, due to the account setup required, Tutorial registration will close two business days prior to each scheduled Tutorial date. This means the cutoff will be end of day Wednesday (3/22) for Monday Tutorials, end of day Monday (3/27) for Thursday Tutorials, and end of day Tuesday (3/28) for Friday morning Tutorials. All new registrations must take place on or before those dates.  

SUBSTITUTION POLICY: Substitution of a confirmed registrant with a new (alternate) registrant with notification sent two business days or more prior to the start of your scheduled tutorial day may be made without charge. Substitution of a confirmed registrant with a new (alternate) registrant with notification sent less than two business days prior to the start of your scheduled tutorial day may be possible; however, we are unable to issue a new unique registration login within this timeframe. If you need to request a substitution, please email

TUTORIAL CHANGE REQUESTS: If you’d like to attend a different Tutorial in the same time slot, you will have access to do so.

If you’d like to change your Tutorial selection to a Tutorial within a different time slot, this request must be made by email to two business days or more prior to the start of your scheduled Tutorial day. Tutorial change requests received less than two business days before your scheduled tutorial day may not be possible due to security and authorization protocols.
