Shortly after submitting your registration, you will receive a confirming email containing a link to the abstract submission site.

Consider the length of time your institution takes to pay invoices. A purchase order number is not considered payment.

If funds are received after 15 April you will owe the full registration fee, even if you completed online registration prior to 31 March.

A note about meals: Davos offers a variety of cafes open for lunch and dinner, although capacity is limited and prices can be expensive. We have left one dinner (Thursday) open for you to dine out in Davos, but otherwise we suggest that you consider the full package of meals for the opportunity to interact with your colleagues while dining at a reasonable cost.
