This email just arrived today, so please join me in thanking the organizers for the huge amount of advance notice about the early registration deadline — this is especially annoying since early registration saves you about $300, and I suspect that a lot of folks aren’t watching their email incredibly closely right now.

The regular registration deadline is January 16th.
