Registration Fee Waivers

Registration Fee Waivers for young researchers are available. Please indicate your interest for a registration fee waiver when submitting your abstract.

The registration fee waivers will be distributed at the discretion of the scientific organisers during the abstract review. If you are awarded a registration fee waiver you will be notified after the abstract review has been completed and asked to confirm your acceptance and submit a form for the reimbursement of your registration fee. This is usually two months before the conference start date. The reimbursement of the registration fee will take place only after  the meeting.
