Can I get an invitation letter for a visum request?
Yes, you can click the "visum" option on the registration page (you need to
have an account on our conference system). We will then
send you a formal invitation letter (but only after payment of the conference
fee has been received).
Are there child care options?
Yes, you can click the "child care" option on the registration page (you need to
have an account on our conference system). We will
then contact you and provide you with the necessary information.
Can I be sure to be able to present at least a poster?
Yes. Every participant will be allowed to present something. If not a talk, then
certainly a poster.
I stay less than 5 days, can I get a reduction of the conference fee?
No. We hope you stay the for all 5 days. If not, that is ok, but we cannot refund
anything. However, if you have exceptional circumstances (e.g. time restrictions
due to child/family care, health issues, ...), you can in your registration
form click on the 'Request reduced fee' flag, and fill out the 'Request text'
justification. The LOC will then decide, on a case-by-case basis, if the fee
can be reduced.
I am a student, can I get a reduction of the conference fee?
The conference fee is not reduced. But depending on the amount of third-party
funding we get approved, we may be able to refund part of your fee or pay for
your accommodation. You can request funding on the registration page (you need to
have an account on our conference system). As soon as we
know which (if) funds will be available, we will post this information.
Can I register now, and submit an abstract later (before the deadline)?
Yes. To ensure that you can participate, you can register now and pay the conference fee within at most 2 weeks.
Then you have time until the deadline (January 31, 2020) to submit an abstract (or modify your existing
abstract). You will need to log back in to the conference system with your
email-address and password.
Why is the conference fee so high? When do we know if financial support is available?
Several people are wondering why the conference fee is so high, and
when we will know if financial support / reduced fee is available, and for whom.
We will try to answer these questions here.
