The Conference Secretariat must be notified of all cancellations in writing. The amount to be refunded will be calculated according to the date when the cancellation notice is received. All refunds will be paid after the conference.

Please note that no refunds will be made after 1 November 2015 due to non-receipt of a visa.

The Conference Secretariat must be notified in writing to request a transfer of registration.
