Registration

General information

Registration for the EPSC-DPS Joint Meeting 2019 is by payment of the appropriate registration fee. There is no waiving of registration fees. Please note that registration can only be processed in EUROS (no other currencies accepted).

Registration fee covers access to all scientific events, a printed copy of the programme book, as well as refreshments during the coffee breaks and poster sessions.

Online registration

Online registration at early registration rates will be possible from end of May (latest) until 31 July 2019. The registration payment can be made by bank transfer or credit card (Mastercard, VISA, JCB or American Express). As of 01 August, the late registration rates will be applied and payment of your registration will only be possible by credit card. Bank transfer payments of registration will not be possible in case of registering after 31 July 2019. Please consider that a registration at the early registration rate requires the payment of the registration amount within the deadline indicated on the invoice (14 days after receipt of invoice). Unpaid early registrations after the payment deadline will be cancelled and the late registration rates would be applied.

Name badge delivery

Participants from most European countries can choose to receive their name badges by airmail about 8–10 days prior to the conference if registering at the early registration rate and the payment is received by 31 July 2019. Although this service is not available for non-European participants, there will be a fast-track lane at the registration desk for online-registered participants to pick up their badges.
