The Congress registration fees are applicable to all participants, except invited keynote speakers, organisers’ guests and accredited press representatives.

Registration is only assured upon receipt of registration fees. Registered participants whose payment is not complete will not be allowed to attend the Congress. Payments are to be made in EURO. Payment Liability of Congress fees arises at the time of registration. Where payment is not received prior to the start of the event, the registration will be cancelled not with standing the fact that the liability of full payment still exists.

If you cannot attend the Congress, we are happy to accept a substitute colleague at any time, provided notice is given in writing to the ERSA office.
