There is no registration fee. Given that this year the conference is fully remote (virtual), conference organizers and the Executive Committee agreed to waive any registration charges. We only ask that any person interested in attending fill out the registration form. 

We are going to use Universidad Javeriana paid Zoom platform for all sessions, break-out rooms and social events.  

In the schedule (Schedule tap, not Program button), every session has a Link to session. Click on it to go to each session, including break-out rooms and social events. Zoom will ask you for a password, which we will provide to you after registration. It will be the same password for all sessions, break-out rooms and social events.

There is no way to replace the actual experience of visiting Bogotá or the rest of Colombia, for that matter. We encourage all Hume Society members to visit us once the pandemic is over. However, to prepare you for all the fun you are going to have and give you small sample of Colombia, we have selected a few videos, where you’ll learn a bit about Colombia’s music, food, places and more. Please visit the “Videos” section at the conference site.
