{WG Chairs:  Please ensure this important Plenary Session information is forwarded to your full Group List as soon as possible !!!}

IEEE 802 Session Information  -  March 13-18, 2011  -  SINGAPORE !!!

To:  All IEEE 802 Members, Liaisons, and Attendees

The March 2011 IEEE 802 LMSC Plenary Session will be held at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore during the week of March 13-18, 2011. 

Session Registration: Any individual who attends any part of a meeting that is a scheduled part of an 802 Plenary Session must register for the full session.  Registration is available through a secure website or at the IEEE 802 On-Site Registration Desk.  Session registrations are not transferable to another individual or to another plenary session.  If you register for an IEEE 802 session and then are unable to attend, you must request cancellation of your registration before the cancellation deadline to be eligible for a refund of all or part of the fees paid. 

We strongly encourage web registration for this session, as it will save you much time spent waiting in line at the On-Site Registration Desk.  In addition, if you register on the web during the Early Session Registration period, you will save $400 US. 

The following Session Registration fees are required for the March 2011 Plenary Session:

  • Early Registration: $800 US before 6pm PST, Monday, January 17, 2011
    (UTC Time: Tuesday, January 18, 2011, 2am)
  • Standard Registration: $1000 US before 6pm PST, Monday, February 28, 2011
    ( UTC Time: Tuesday, March 1, 2011, 2am)
  • Late / On-Site Registration: $1200 US after 6pm PST, Monday, February 28, 2011
    (UTC Time: Tuesday, March 1, 2011, 2am)

These fees include Deluxe Continental Breakfasts (M-F), 3-Course Buffet Lunches (M-Th), and morning and afternoon Coffee/Tea/Soda Breaks for all registered attendees during the session. 

Web registration requires valid credit card information for the payment of the registration fee; checks are NOT accepted for web-registration. 

The registration fee will be discounted by $300 US for all registrants who stay one or more nights at the 802-contracted hotel, the Marina Bay Sands.  A significant portion of the IEEE 802 room rate covers the cost of the meeting spaces and services the hotel provides for our group, so only attendees staying at the Marina Bay Sands will receive this discount.  Your name must be shown as a registered guest at the Marina Bay Sands, or you will be required to show proof of your stay at the hotel.  Attendees who share rooms must ensure that all attendee names are shown on the hotel reservation record.  Repayment of the $300 discount will be required at the On-Site Registration Desk if your hotel stay cannot be verified by the hotel (i.e., your name must appear on the hotel's list of registered guests).
