How to Reserve Tickets for Each of the Two Events

The Friday night celebration is sold out, but due to overwhelming demand, the Friday night event will now be live-streamed here.  There will be a standby line on Friday night at Beckman Auditorium and seating from this line will begin at 7:45 pm.

A limited number of additional tickets are now available for the Saturday Symposium here.

Questions may be directed to


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You will need a physical Beckman Auditorium ticket in order to get into the event. The Eventbrite confirmation you will receive by email is NOT a ticket.

What time do I need to arrive to the event to get a seat?

The ticket you reserve on this website will be for reserved open seating, first come-first served. You will need to arrive NO LATER THAN 20 minutes before the start of the event, or your spot will be forfeited.

Is it ok if the name on my registration doesn’t match the person who attends?

Yes, as long as there is one ticket per person

What if I only get one ticket and want to attend both events?

Each event has its own ticketing link, one for Friday and one for Saturday.  If you’d like to attend both events, make sure to click each link to reserve your tickets for that event.  If tickets are sold out to the May 11th Evening Celebration, a waiting list will open.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
