Registration and Payment

Registration will be confirmed if payment is received by the Congress Office by 1 August 2017. Should payment be received after this date, you will receive your confirmation at the CCAS 2017. Please bring a copy of your bank remittance with you.

Cancellations of Congress Participation

Notice of cancellation should be sent in writing only to the Congress Office. In case of cancellation according to the published early registration deadline the payment will be refunded, minus a handling charge of $ 100,-. No refund will be made after this deadline.

Cancellation of Preparation Course Participation

No refund will be made after successful registration.

Changes to the Congress program

In the event of cancellations by speakers or other changes in the main congress program, no full or partial refund of the registration fee can be made.

Abstract Submission

The acceptance of submitted abstracts simultaneously results in binding registration of the speaker to attend the conference. The registration fee must be paid immediately after receiving the abstract acceptance. Onsite registration for presenting authors is not possible. If the author withdraws a contribution accepted by the scientific committee and printed in the abstract book, registration for the conference will be maintained and there will be no refund of the registration fees. If an abstract has not been accepted, the registration fee will be refunded upon request.

Loss of Name Badge

$ 25,- must be paid to acquire a new name badge in the event that the name badge, which at the same time entitles the holder to attend the congress, is lost. If the attendee is later able to produce the newly acquired and the previously lost name badge, $ 25,- will be refunded.

Supporting Program

Sightseeing tours must be paid in advance at the time of registration. Each tour requires a minimum number of participants. If this minimum is not reached, the tour will be cancelled and the full advance payment will be refunded. In the event of cancellation by a participant, no refund will be made. Reservations for the supporting program will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.
