What's not covered
Your travel expenses (transportation, lodging, other meals) are not part of the registration and must be covered by you or your organization.
SBCTC is not making any hotel room arrangements, so if you are a government employee and must follow per diem restrictions, use Hotels at Per Diem so you are able to find a hotel that honors the rate you need.
