    Note about Dual RD20/20 and ISER registration: To encourage attendance to both the RD20/20 and the ISER meetings, the organizers of the RD20/20 and ISER 2020 have agreed to offer a $200 discount to the registration fees for each meeting. Hopefully this total discount of $400 ($200 off the RD20/20 registration and $200 off the ISER registration), will encourage more people to attend both meetings. This discount only applies to the ISER full meeting registration and does not apply to ISER attendees who use the daily registration option. To claim this discount, attendees should first register with the RD20/20 meeting. You should select the option to indicate that you will dual with ISER. You will be charged the full registration fee at the RD20/20 website. You will then be able to use the RD20/20 receipt to claim the $200 discount at ISER registration. Once we the organizer verified your ISER registration, they will refund $200 from the RD meeting account.
