Booking and cancellation conditions

Payment modalities

Payment of Registration fees may be made in EURO (no VAT) by:

Bank transfer to the congress account
Payments should be made without charges to the beneficiary. Any bank charges will be collected on site. Clearly state the participant's name(s), matching with the name(s) on the registration form.

Credit Cards: Visa, Mastercard  


The reduced registration fee is only applicable, if it has been paid to the congress account within the according deadlines. Registering without performing an actual payment will automatically set your balance to the fee applicable onsite.  

Confirmation of Registration

You will receive written confirmation of registration by e-mail when the registration form has been received and the payment has been credited to the congress account. Kindly note that payments made within 1 week prior to the congress cannot be confirmed in writing. If you made a bank transfer within this period, it will be essential to bring a proof of payment of your registration fee, when collecting the registration material.

Name changes

Name changes will be treated like the cancellation of one registration and the new registration of another participant. New registration and payment are required.
