International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts

ICFA 44 is here! (Reminders, Policies, and Conference App)

By In IAFA, ICFA On March 14, 2023

Welcome to ICFA! We are excited to see you all at the Marriott Lakeside.


If you will not be attending, please let me know ASAP so I can cancel your registration in the computer system. We don’t give refunds this late but will credit you. You must use the credit within 2 years. If you don’t inform us of your desire to cancel before the start of the conference on Wednesday, you will not receive a credit.


The registration desk will be open for you to pick up your badge during the following hours:

Wednesday: 1pm-8pm

Thursday: 8am-6pm

Friday: 8am-6pm

Saturday: 8am-12pm


The program will be available via the Sched app! Although we have optional hard-copy schedules in both long and short forms, the app will be continuously updated and therefore will be the most correct. You can also view the schedule online here (, but the app will still be more up-to-date.

In a web browser…

Password: You can find the password in an email sent to the account associated with your Membership and Registration.
You will now be able to see a schedule of sessions, which you can filter.
From Schedule, you have several other options. Click around and have fun!

In the Sched app…

Download the app to your phone.
At the search prompt, type “icfa” and you should see and select the ICFA44 conference.
Password: You can find the password in an email sent to the account associated with your Membership and Registration.
The app view of sessions is like the pocket program. It is not as detailed as the web browser view.
If you have created an account, you can add and remove sessions from your personal schedule through the app. We encourage you to add a headshot to your profile.


This year’s hashtag is #ICFA44.

Please note that the hotel’s airport shuttle is not handicapped accessible.
Highly collectible merch featuring this year’s artwork will be available for purchase at the Registration desk. Meal tickets will be available for purchase until sold out ($48 for the luncheons and $65 for the banquet). Outstanding membership and registration fees must be paid before you can get your name tag. The Reg desk accepts cash, checks, and credit cards (but cannot take AmEx on site).

See you soon!
