  • Q1: Do I have to be a GLEON member to register?

    A1: No - ALL are welcome! Anyone plans to attend G17 must complete registration *on time* so we can make arrangement accordingly (meals, meeting rooms, poster space, buses to Friday & Saturday tours, etc.).

  • Q2: I need to change something in the registration already submitted (e.g. wish to attend a different workshop on Monday; change my mind on field trip options, etc.), what should I do?

    A2: Please submit a new registration before the deadline. We will use your most recent entry and discard old ones.

  • To colleagues and students based in South Korea: if you have questions and would like to communicate in Korean, please contact Donghwan Kim (kimdh@kangwon.ac.kr).
