Early Registration is open through August 14!

The CRC strives to keep Reef Futures one of the most affordable symposiums of its caliber. In the face of the ongoing economic insecurity, with the support of our sponsors, we are pleased to be able to keep the conference registration fees the same as they were for Reef Futures 2022.  


We expect that the overall cost to attend Reef Futures 2024 to be less than past iterations of the conference. With the support of our generous sponsors, we will offer scholarships to support the cost of attendance for those with a demonstrated need.
