Stoa Membership Registration

In order to register for NITOC 2016, you must be a Stoa member. When you register, this website will automatically cross-check your Stoa membership registration to ensure that you are eligible for NITOC 2016. (The name you register under must be formatted exactly the same way for both websites. If this is not done, you will endure the frustrating experience of software limitations trying to convince you that the system cannot recognize your registration.)
