Registration for the Shroud of Turin Conference

Registration for the conference can be made with  or without meals.  The meals include lunch and dinner served in the conference room on July 20-22, which is Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the conference.  We encourage people to register for the conference with meals so that they will not miss any of the conference and so they can talk during meals with those making presentations and others attending the conference.  Registering for the conference with meals will also help to pay for rental of the TRAC center.  The meals will be served buffet style to expedite the process.  Special requests may be possible, with additional cast, for gluten free meals, veggie meals, and vegan meals.  Please communicate special meal requests during the registration process below, or to
