V. Other Conference Related Information

Detailed registration information will be forthcoming on BDI’s homepage ( Please check this page on a regular basis for updates.

The conference registration fee is $250 and the registration deadline is February 1, 2019. This fee covers access to all sessions during the conference, plenary sessions, available papers, one formal dinner, two lunches, and two breakfasts. For participants from Bangladesh (excluding students), the registration fee is $150. For students (from all countries) and local residents, the registration fee is $100. Whether you are presenting a paper or not, you are welcome to attend the conference.

Authors of the accepted submissions will receive formal letters confirming acceptance for the conference. This will help authors to begin preparations for travel (including visa) to USA. A list of authors, panelists and invited guests will be sent to the US Embassy in Dhaka to assist with visa. Please note that BDI has no control over the visa process, which is solely the jurisdiction of the US Embassy.

BDI will post a list of hotels in the area near the conference site, and share details on how to reserve a room on its homepage in the coming days. Other information such as directions to the venue and transportation will be posted on the BDI website as these become available. Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements.

As with the past conferences, BDI seeks to bring a large number of participants from Bangladesh. Hence, we look for sponsors from both the private and public sectors to underwrite the conference costs, and to provide limited travel stipends. Provided sufficient funds become available, travel stipends may be offered to partially cover the registration/travel expenses for those traveling from Bangladesh. However, at this time no commitment can be made on travel stipends. Even if these stipends become available, they will be reimbursed after the
conference is over, and the amount may not exceed $500. Those interested in attending the conference are advised to be prepared to bear the full cost of travel to the conference (registration, travel, hotel, food, local transportation, etc.).
