1.     Registration

Due to logistic limitations the conference is limited to a maximum of 200 participants. We will proceed at a “first come, first served” basis. After the maximum number of participants has been reached, further applicants will be put on a waiting list. Please be aware that this might happen even before the deadline expires.
 The Organizing Committee therefore reserves the right to decline applications at any stage.


Questions regarding registration or any other query may be sent to ecbcc2017@be-frank.de

In addition, an invoice for payment of the conference fee will be sent to you via e-mail.


You will then receive a final confirmation of registration by mail when the payment has been credited to the conference account. Kindly note that payments made within 2 weeks prior to the conference cannot be confirmed in writing. If you made a bank transfer within this period, it will be essential to bring a proof of payment of your registration fee, when collecting the registration material.

4.     Cancellation Policy

Registration cancellations must be notified in writing by email to ecbcc2017@be-frank.de. Cancellations received upon 15 working days prior the first day of the conference will receive a refund of registration fees less an administration charge of 10% of the Conference fee. Cancellations made after, as well as “no shows”, are liable for the full registration fee. Participants must make sure they receive an acknowledgement of their cancellation from the Organizing Committee. Only this will confirm that their request has been received and processed.
