The 2013 Interpreter Foundation Symposium “Science & Mormonism: Cosmos, Earth & Man” is coming up this Saturday, November 9, 2013, at the Utah Valley Convention Center in Provo, Utah. We look forward to your attendance with us.
As we have already noted, pre-registrations sold out a few weeks ago. We’ve had a number of people ask if there is another way they can get tickets or gain entrance.
We will have a standby line near the conference room for those who were unable to pre-register. As soon as the conference starts with opening remarks at 8:30am, we will open up the standby line to walk-up registrations until the empty seats in the conference room are filled. There is no guarantee that you’ll be able to gain entrance, but we anticipate being able to fill some empty seats once the conference begins.
If you cannot gain entrance, the conference will be live streamed on the Internet via YouTube Live. You can watch the full conference from this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEtdclSQ5d8
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.
The Interpreter Foundation is pleased to announce that its latest volume, Interpreter: A Journal of Mormon Scripture, Volume 6 (2013), is now available as a professionally bound paperback for ordering. The 216 page volume can be ordered online at Amazon.com for $4.84 plus shipping (or free shipping with Amazon Prime membership). This price reflects the cost of printing only, with no markup or royalty. This bound volume includes all of the peer-reviewed articles that have been published in volume 6 online at MormonInterpreter.com.
Soon you’ll be able to get a free copy of the Kindle e-book edition of the volumes along with your paperback purchase, with Amazon’s new Kindle Matchbook service, recently announced. Those who have purchased our paperback volumes in the past will also be able to access the Kindle edition of those same volumes for free. (Note, only purchases of volumes through Amazon.com will qualify for this service.)
If you’d like to automatically receive Interpreter volumes in the mail soon after they are completed, please consider subscribing to our annual print subscription for the annual price of $50 (covers our cost of printing and shipping only, without markup or royalty). Annual print subscribers will have priority access to our print editions, before they are made available on Amazon.com. Please note that if you subscribed to the annual print subscription of Interpreter prior to September 24, 2013, your copy of volume 6 has already shipped, and you have likely already received it.

The 2013 Interpreter Foundation symposium “Science & Mormonism: Cosmos, Earth, & Man,” is coming up three weeks from today on November 9, 2013. As we noted earlier, full details of the program, schedule, bios, abstracts, and other information have been posted to the Interpreter website. Look under the “Events” menu tab.
We are pleased that registrations for the symposium have completely sold out, with almost 600 registered to attend. We’re sorry that we could not make room for more, but our venue limits us.
For those who were not able to register, or who are not local or able to make the trip to Provo, we will be providing free live streaming in HD video and sound of the symposium as it takes place. This stream will be available for viewing online via YouTube Live, and is viewable from any Internet-connected computer or mobile device anywhere in the world.
To view the symposium online, simply go to the YouTube page which will be showing the video stream (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEtdclSQ5d8), and click on the play button. There you can also discuss the symposium in real-time with other viewers by adding your comments on the YouTube page. You can also watch the stream from the Interpreter website Live Video Stream page, but will be unable to comment with other viewers. Only in-person attendees will be able to submit questions to the presenters. Make sure your computer or mobile device can view YouTube videos without problems, and that you are on a sufficiently fast internet connection such as DSL or cable broadband (dial-up or cellular data networks are probably insufficient). To view the video full-screen, simply click the lower right-hand icon in the YouTube video player.
Recorded videos of the symposium will also be made available online in the days following the conference on Interpreter’s YouTube channel and website.
Please let us know if you have any questions about the live streaming of the symposium, and we’ll be glad to answer them.
