Registration terms

General rules

Every accepted paper in the conference must have one author register at the regular (non-student) rate, by the early registration deadline, i.e., 14 November 2019. Each regular registration only covers one paper. Authors with multiple papers must either pay for multiple registrations or ask their co-authors to register for the other papers. Papers without registered author(s) will be withdrawn from the program and the proceedings.

Registration procedure

Registrations are handled in electronic form. Only fully completed registration forms will be accepted. The registration fee is based on the date of the receipt of the registration form and the payment in full, in accordance with the deadlines mentioned above. Should one deadline be missed, the next applicable fee will be charged automatically. The registration will only be confirmed upon receipt of payment in full. An invoice will be available at the registration desk upon your arrival.

In exceptional circumstances, registrations can be done on site with payment in cash according to the late registration fees. If you intend to use this option, please contact the organizers ahead of time.
