A Proof of Status is an official letter written and signed (by hand/ no electronic signature) by the head of department – hospital or academic institution – which confirms the status of the applicant. The document must be issued in English on official hospital/university letterhead and must be submitted to the Registration Department before the relevant registration deadline. Once the online pre-registrations for the Meeting are closed, participants still wishing to register will need to bring their proof of status onsite, in order to benefit from the reduced fee.
N.B.: When letters, certifying status, are sent after the early/late registration deadline, the next registration fee will be applicable even when the registration is processed online and fully paid.

Registration fees include:

  • Attendance to all scientific sessions
  • All meeting documentation
  • Coffee, refreshments and standing lunch during official breaks

Terms of payment for registration fees

Please note that the late registration fees will apply for any payments received after the stated deadlines. Confirmations of registrations and invoices for the relevant charges will only be sent after receipt of the appropriate fees.
