The 2015 WFY Symposium will take place from the 26-29th of March 2015, and will be held at the Villanova University Conference Center, Villanova, PA (just outside of Philadelphia), USA.

Registration will open on December 1, 2014, and will continue until the conference begins—however, after February 1, 2015, conference fees will increase.

Early registration (December 1, 2014-February 1, 2015) fees will be $250 USD for faculty, and $200 USD for students. If you are an independent researcher, your fees will be the same as the student category. Included in this fee are morning and afternoon coffee/snack breaks on all four days, lunch on 26, 27, 28 March, and an afternoon reception and dinner on 26 March.

We have set aside a small fund to assist with travel (or other conference related) financial assistance. This assistance will be available only for participants 1) from outside Europe, North America, and Australia and 2) whose earnings are below $30,000 USD annually. BOTH criteria have to be met for a request to be considered. The conference organizers are aware of the high travel costs to the U.S. from geographically distant locations and deeply sensitive to the global inequalities in knowledge flows and financial structures underlying educational institutions. In order to apply for a reduction or waiver of registration fees and/or other financial support for travel, please email a request directly to the conference planners (;; outlining a case for the award. In order to be considered for this award, your request must be received by January 31, 2015.
