Cancellations, transfers and lost badges

Cancellation policy

The policy regarding cancellation of paid registrations is as follows:

Until 31 July 2016:  Full refund (minus an 80 euro administrative charge)
1 August through 30 September 2016:  50 per cent refund (in other words, the cancellation charge is 50 per cent)
As of 1 October 2016: No refunds will be given.

The Conference Secretariat must be notified of all cancellations in writing. The amount to be refunded will be calculated according to the date when the cancellation notice is received. All refunds will be paid after the conference.

Please note that no refunds will be made after 30 September due to non-receipt of a visa.

Transferring a Registration

It is possible to transfer an existing registration to another person if you can no longer attend the conference. There is no transfer fee for groups; for individual registrations, a transfer fee of 80 euros will be charged.

The Conference Secretariat must be notified in writing to request a transfer of registration. Please send the existing registration name and registration number (5-digit number located above the name in the email confirmation) along with a completed offline registration form for the person to whom the registration is being transfered.

Lost badge 

If you lose your badge while attending the conference, please report the loss immediately at the registration desk. You will need to show proof of your identity to receive a replacement badge.  There is a 40 euro administrative fee for providing a replacement badge.
