You can check the registration portal or log in via email. After your registration you will receive a written confirmation. Your data will be electronically stored in a database for internal purposes. It will not
be passed on to third parties.
3. Cancellation of a participant
If cancellation occurs before 16 February 2021, a processing fee of € 50.00 will be charged. In case of cancellation before 02. March 2021, a processing fee in the amount of 50 % of the bill will be charged. Subsequently the processing fee is equivalent to the amount of the registration fee. The same applies if the participant fails to appear. The cancellation must be in written form. Relevant for the term protection is the date of the postmark. We are happy to accept a substitute participant at no additional cost. This does not apply for tickets free of charge for students.
4. Cancellation by the organizer
For short-term default of a speaker due to force majeure, illness, accident or any other circumstances the FKFS is not responsible for, another qualified person is appointed to the exclusion of any claims for damages.
FKFS reserves the possibility of a final cancellation of the event due to technical or organizational reasons, such as failure to achieve the minimum number of participants, force majeure or other circumstances
the FKFS is not responsible for. Already paid participation fees will then be refunded. Any further claim for reimbursement of expenses shall not exist.
5. Participation fee and conditions of payment
We ask for payment within 14 days after receipt of invoice. The participation fee for the complete conference includes access to all events on both days, the conference documentation, lunch at the venue each day, refreshments and participation in formal evening reception. Students (including PhD candidates) are excluded from receiving the conference documents and from participating at the evening reception. The remaining services are not affected by this restriction.
The conference documentation may not be reproduced or distributed to third parties without written consent from FKFS. Audio and video recordings of the event are not allowed.
7. Video and photo recording
At the conference photographers contracted by FKFS will take pictures of the event as well as of participants and presenters. Images and pictures in which participants are visible in their entirety or in part are property of FKFS and may be reproduced for publication.
