Hi everyone,

The Epi on the Island summer courses for 2015 hosted by CVER have been 
announced, and the webpage (http://cver.upei.ca/epiontheisland2015) is 
open for registration. In this message, we'll explain how local 
participants may most effectively register for a course.

The main message is that you SHOULD NOT register through Eventbrite 
because you can save the costs associated with the Eventbrite 
registration system by registering locally instead. Local faculty, 
including post-docs and research associates, will pay the non-student 
fee, minus 15% ($720 before June 1st, otherwise $800). You register by 
sending an e-mail to Jenny Yu (jennyye at upei.ca) and by internal transfer 
of funds to the Epi on the Island account. Jenny has the details, and 
our secretaries (in particular, Tracy and Joan) can assist. If you 
nevertheless register through Eventbrite, you'll be paying the full fee.

Graduate students have two options for registering, depending on whether 
they want to take to the course for credit or not. Without taking the 
course for credit, the local registration with Jenny works as described 
above, only the course fee is that for students: $470 before June 1st, 
otherwise $550.

Graduate students may take a course for credit within either VHM 831 (2 
modules) or VHM 832 (1 module), assuming they have not already used up 
all their credits in these two courses. In this case, the student should 
register at the Registrar's Office for the VHM course in question in the 
summer semester, in addition to the VHM course being added to the 
student's program. Taking the course for credit also involves handing in 
a course assignment, which will be marked as pass/fail. The deadline for 
the assignment will be sometime late in the summer. The logistics of 
this assignment will be described in more detail in the courses. The 
course fee for students that take the course for credit is $150, 
covering only the costs of materials, catering, and the course dinner 
(without any discount for both courses). Graduate students that want to 
take the course for credit should contact the course coordinator for VHM 
831/832 (Henrik) before registering with Jenny as described above.

We hope these arrangements are clear and sound reasonable. Henrik is 
happy to answer any questions you might have.

- Javier and Henrik
