This is the Vendor Registration page for the Third Conference on Laboratory Instruction Beyond the First Year (BFY3). The conference will be held at Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore, MD on the three days (Wednesday, July 25, 2018 through Friday, July, 27, 2018) immediately preceding the 2018 Summer National Meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT).

The goal of the BFY3 Conference is to expose attendees to a broad range of contemporary instructional lab experiments appropriate for sophomore-, junior- and senior-level college physics courses, while also serving as an opportunity to discuss a range of curricular models that allow for enhancement of the undergraduate physics major. This goal will be met through a combination of hands-on small-group workshops, plenary talks, panel discussions, poster sessions as well as informal conversations.

Registration is limited to 150 non-vendor attendees, and is expected to reach capacity before the registration deadline.


All sponsors will have banners recognizing their contribution at sponsored events. Sponsors will also get an active link to their website from the conference website for 1 year from the end of the BFY3 conference. Sponsors who contribute $750 or more will have an active link to their website for 2 years 9 months (i.e., 3 months prior to the next projected BFY conference).

Additional info about the conference rates and sponsorship options is available in the Letter to Vendors.
