Participation in the congress and the events of the BAMPS 2017 congress is subject to a fee. Registration to the congress and the booking of social events is binding for the participant. Registrations received without payment within 14 days since the registration date will not be processed or confirmed.
Within 48 hours of online registration, an automatic e-mail confirmation will be sent to the e-mail address provided during the registration process. A letter including logistical and practical details will be sent by e-mail approximately two weeks before the congress.
Registration fees are based on the date when the registration and payment were received. Fees are quoted in euros (EUR). Please note that payments in other currencies will not be accepted.
The fees are to be paid in advance according to the invoice generated during the registration process. The payment of the registration fee is to be made via bank transfer. Any and all resulting bank charges are to be paid by the congress participant. Bank drafts and cheques will not be accepted.
Bank tranfers should be made according to the invoice received by the registrant after completing the registration. Bank fees are the sole responsibility of the registrant and should be paid in addition to the registration fees. The bank transfer must clearly state the name of the participant and the invoice number, as unidentified bank transfers cannot be processed. If payment is made for more than one person or by a company, please make sure that all names and invoice numbers are properly indicated. The payment needs to be received within 15 days after completing the registration form; otherwise the registration will not be confirmed. Note that in any case the payment must be made before the registration deadline or a higher fee will apply.
Any cancellation*** of registration and/or paid services within the congress programme (transfers and tours) should be sent in writing to the congress secretariat e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cancellations received on or before 9 March 2017: refund of the fee minus an administrative fee of EUR 30 (including 20% VAT). All refunds will be processed after the congress.
Cancellations received after 9 March 2017: no refund is possible.
