Before proceeding to the registration page, make sure that you have read, understood and agreed to the following points / terms:

Personal information. The Organizing committee affirms that the personal information collected in the registration pages will be treated with the strictest confidentiality. The information collected is meant for communication with the applicant and for statistical purposes only. No part or whole will be given to third parties, including EMBL and conference sponsoring companies. After completion of the logistics of the symposium, this information will be discarded.

Contact information in the abstract book. Please note that during the registration procedure you will have to indicate if you want or not your contact address included in the conference abstract book

Registration procedure. The registration procedure has to be completed in steps. First, the applicant is asked about general information on his/her participation in the conference. This information will be reviewed by the organizing committee, which will decide about admittance of the applicant to the symposium. Upon refusal, all personal information about the applicant will be eventually discarded, except in cases where the applicant is put on a waiting list.
Upon acceptance, the applicant will be asked to give information about travel and accommodation arrangements. This information will be accessible for revisions and updates until the deadline for confirmation of attendance is met. After this deadline, no changes or refundable cancellations will be possible

Security issues. The information entered in the registration pages is transmitted to us by an encrypted secure connection. This effectively means that no people or third parties can see the information sent to us. If in doubt about security issues, the applicant is encouraged to contact us at

Payment procedure, credit card information and security issues. During the registration procedure, the applicant will be asked to choose a mode of payment for the participation fee and the optional accommodation. Payment can only be made by a valid credit card or direct bank transfer. The organizing committee reserves the right to turn down applicants. Especially in cases when no valid credit card number or alternative means of payment is made available.

Travel documents and visas. Prior to traveling to Italy, some applicants from certain countries may have to acquire special travel documents, such as a visa.

Since the process may be time consuming, applicants are advised to make such arrangements as soon as possible. Failure to obtain a visa after the deadline for participation in the conference will not result in a refund.
Applicants are responsible for providing the right documentation needed for their entry to Italy. However, upon request, the Organizing Committee can issue a formal letter of acceptance to the symposium for obtaining a visa. The organizing committee can not be held responsible in the case of a refusal by Italian authorities to enter Italian territory.

In the event of changes to deadlines, these changes will be communicated in the symposium web page or by other means possible.
