Frequently Asked Questions

The registration price of $85 + processing fees covers admittance to all conference events, including breakfast, refreshments, and lunch as specified on the official schedule. Dinner on Saturday night is not included.

Lodging, transportation, and Bioethics Bowl registration are not included in the main registration price.

Interested in submitting a poster for presentation at the conference? That’s great!

You can notify conference organizers of your intention to present during registration, where you’ll be prompted for the title of your presentation, name and contact information, and an abstract of 250 words or less describing the project. After registration, you will be contacted with additional information about dimensions and content.

If you’re not sure yet whether you’d like to present, you can indicate an interest in presenting by checking ‘maybe’ during the registration process, and contacting Poster Session Coordinator Lauren Lefebvre (nubcposters@gmail.com) later with the information above. Only submission of your title and abstract will secure you a space to display the poster.

The posters will be on display on Saturday afternoon for all attendees and members of the Georgetown community to view. In addition, there is a special “attended” poster session late Saturday afternoon that will enable poster presenters to answer questions directly in the display hall.

There is no additional cost to submit a poster — other than the costs of printing your poster — and all are encouraged to apply.

There are many ways to get to Georgetown’s campus via public transportation — but it’s not always simple! Please check out Travel & Lodging for complete information.

We have reserved single- and double-occupancy hotel rooms for April 4, 5, and 6 at two hotels near campus. Check out Location for full details.

The Bioethics Bowl is one of the most exciting parts of the annual NUBC, in which undergraduate teams from around the country come to compete for bioethics glory.

Each team is comprised of five actively competing members plus alternate members as desired, and up to two coaches. Team registration for the Bioethics Bowl is a separate process from the registration of individual team members. A fee of $250 + processing fees is required to secure one of the sixteen team slots available for the competition. You do not need to have all the names of team-members on hand in order to register your team — the registration is editable, and individual names can be added or edited at a later date. Team registration will be cross-checked with official registration to ensure that all team members have completed the main registration, and vice versa.

You can get further details on the dedicated Bioethics Bowl section of the website or contact gubiobowl2013@gmail.com.

Yes. All Bioethics Bowl student team members and coaches must pay for individual conference registration. The $250 is to help cover the costs for running the Bioethics Bowl Competition, and the $85 registration is for the NUBC Conference attendance. We purposely organized the conference so students could benefit from both, and we expect that everyone participating in the Bowl will also register for the conference.

Completing the Bioethics Bowl registration will hold a place for your team. All members of Bioethics Bowl teams and their coaches must also complete an individual conference registration but the team registration is the one required to reserve a spot at the Bowl. Conference registration is limited to 300, and the Bioethics Bowl competition to 16 teams, so we encourage you to reserve your spot early.
