Computer Workshops

IAJGS Orando 2017 is pleased to offer an extensive collection of elective computer workshops during the conference led by experts in their field.  The cost of each workshop is $35 and pre-registration is required as space in each workshop is limited.

You may register for these workshops at the time of initial registration, or return to register for them at a subsequent date, subject to availability.

If you choose to register later, be sure to remember your login email address and password so that you may return to the site!

Additional workshops will very likely be added between now and the date of the conference, so be sure to examine the conference schedule when it is published in March for the latest news, and follow our conference blog and Facebook page for regular updates. (You can sign up at the bottom of this page.)
