Registration Details

  • Grants & Invoices
    • In alignment with Wake Forest University’s commitment to cultivate an inclusive environment and to support perspectives from multiple areas, financial support is designated for the WISE Conference through full & partial conference registration grants, which cover only the cost of registration for the general WISE Conference or a Pre-Conference Workshop. Grant recipients and/or their institution are responsible for all other costs related to the conference (travel, non-included meals, accommodations, incidentals). It is best to register for WISE after you receive a decision about your grant application.
    • If your institution/organization has six or more attendees participating in WISE 2023, we offer one complimentary registration to someone from your institution. We are also able to provide an invoice for registration costs. Contact for details.

Wake Forest University and Wake Forest School of Medicine faculty, staff, and students receive complimentary registration to the WISE Conference on February 3-4; however, WFU participants must register through the WISE Cvent site using their Wake Forest email address.

If you can only attend one day, contact for a code to use during registration; this will help for meal planning purposes.

Pre-conference workshops on February 2, 2023, are not included in the complimentary registration for Wake Forest University attendees. WFU personnel are welcome to register for the enriching pre-conference workshops at their own or approved departmental expense. A limited number of grants (see tab above) are available for WFU faculty/staff to attend a pre-conference workshop. Contact for information on how to apply.
