The social dinner is not included in the fee and costs 40 EUR for ABCD members and 55 EUR (VAT included) for not members. If you wish to attend the dinner, please select it during the registration procedure.
The early bird discount applies to payments received until 1 July 2019. Registrations will remain open until 29 July 2019 at the regular price.
N.B. Payments must be received within each deadline indicated (if you are paying by bank transfer or through your administration, please ensure that it is initiated in due time).
Payment is possible by credit card or bank transfer. Further details about the payment procedure is available through your personal myABCD page. Normally, invoices or receipts (for VAT exempt payments) will be issued and sent to participants after payment.
If the invoice has to be issued to an office of the Italian public administration (e.g. your Department, your University, etc), you need to follow the procedure for electronic invoicing for PA (Pubblica Amministrazione): in this case, before proceeding with the payment, contact the ABCD secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive further instructions.
Payment must be made by the public administration/institution upon receiving the electronic invoice issued by the ABCD and before the payment deadline; please take administrative delays into account.
Cancellations with a refund request must be sent by e-mail to the organising secretariat and must be accompanied by a valid justification. Refunds will be decided case by case by the organisers. If accepted, cancellations within 29 July 2019 will be refunded fully, minus an administrative charge of 30 EUR; cancellations within 5 August 2019 will be refunded only by 50% of the total package price; no refunds will be provided after 5 August 2019.
The Congress registration fee (see Registrations & Costs) covers the attendance of the Pre-Congress Meeting for those accepted; dinner on Wednesday, 18 September, is also included. To apply, you must be a post-doc or a Ph.D. student and be under 35 years of age at the start of the congress. You must indicate your intention to participate during the registration procedure.
