Cancellation of the congress
In the event that the congress cannot be held or is postponed due to events beyond the control of the congress organizers (force majeure) or due to events which are not attributable to wrongful intent or gross negligence of the congress organizers, the congress organizers cannot be held liable by delegates for any damages, costs, or losses incurred, such as transportation costs, accommodation costs, costs for additional orders, financial losses, etc.
Under these circumstances, the congress organizers reserve the right to either retain the entire registration fee and to use it for a future congress, or to reimburse the delegate after deducting costs already incurred for the organization of the congress and which could not be recovered from third parties.
Change of name
A name change fee of EUR 50 will be charged for every name change to an existing registration. A new registration form for the substitute delegate should NOT be submitted. Name changes will be accepted by e-mail and should indicate the old and new names and any changes in contact information. In case of a name change, the delegate agrees to take over all booked items of the originally registered delegate.
