Within 24 hours of completing your registration, you can join other attendees on the Whova app. Whova is our virtual conference center and can be accessed via the Whova app or the web. Instructions will be sent in your confirmation email. Please make a note of the email address with which you used to register for our conference. This same email address will be added our Whova permission list for this event site. If you use any other email address to log into Whova, you may receive an error message.

With Whova, you can see who’s coming, view the program, connect with speakers and attendees, set personal meetings, start your own discussion groups, and more. Once the conference starts, you will “enter” every virtual session by connecting from Whova. After the conference, attendees can use Whova to access recorded sessions and network for up to 6 months.

Cancellation policy

We hope that the hybrid format of this year's ScienceWriters and the access to archived videos for many virtual sessions (available 6 months post-event for registrants) makes it unlikely that you will need to cancel your participation entirely.

Should you need to cancel one or more parts of your registration, either use the link on your confirmation email or send an email to workshops@nasw.org with "Cancellation" in the subject line.

If your cancellation request is received by October 6, you will receive a full refund less a $25 processing fee. No refunds can be made once conference events begin on October 12, with the exception of health-related cancellations for the in-person portion. Such health-related cancellations made outside the cancellation period will be refunded the in-person portion of the registration fee.

Non-attendance does not constitute cancellation. Registrations are not transferable to another person.

Attendees should not travel if they are sick, have been exposed to anyone with a documented or suspected case of COVID-19 within 10 days, or exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19. For full details on this and other COVID-19 policies, visit sciencewriters2022.org/COVID19.
