Liability

The attendance of the SCTE'2018 is at own risk. In no event shall the Conference Organizers be liable for death, injury, any loss, cost or expense suffered by any person (including accompanying persons, partner, or attendant caregivers). In particular, they are not liable for losses arising from the provision or non-provision of services provided by hotel companies or transport operators. Nor are they liable for losses suffered by technical, mechanical or electrical breakdown within any premises visited by delegates and/or partners in connection with the SCTE'2018. No liability is assumed for inaccuracy, misdescription, delay, damage, loss, personal injury or death. Every effort will be made to conduct this conference according to the schedule and dates posted. However unlikely, unforeseen circumstances may result in schedule changes or conference cancellation. Registrants will be notified by email of major changes or cancellation.

Recording

No part of the SCTE'2018 may be recorded, reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, including but not limited to video or audio recording, photograph, photocopy or any other information storage or retrieval system known now or in the future, without the express written permission of the Conference Organizers.

Registration, Conference registration fee

The Conference Organizers have settled on a fixed registration fee for all participants to encourage attendance during the entire conference and to provide the conference financing. The fixed registration fee will be charged regardless of the length of time a participant attends the conference.

Accompanying persons: Accompanying persons need to register separately and are charged the fee under the same conditions as participants. See above.

Payment of Fees

All conference and function payments must be paid as specified. If no payment has been received, your registration will be invalid and you will be taken off the participants list.

Substitution and cancellation policy

Cancellations must be submitted in writing to the Conference Secretariat. All cancellations received by the Conference Secretariat on or before March 1, 2018 are entitled to a refund less a handling charge of EUR 50. No refunds will be given to registrants who cancel after March 1, 2018 or who fail to attend the event (no show). Substitutions for paid registrants may be made at any time in writing to the Conference Secretariat.

Submissions

The invitation to submit an abstract does not constitute an offer to pay travel, accommodation or registration costs associated with the Conference. Similarly, no speakers' fee is paid to successful applicants of presentations or posters.  You also grant the Conference Organizers permission to publish the abstract in the Abstract booklet. The Conference Organizers decision on acceptance of the abstract will be final.

Insurance

Registration fees do not include personal travel insurance of any kind. It is strongly recommended that, when registering for the Conference and booking travel, a travel insurance policy be taken out to cover loss, cancellation, medical cover, etc., for any reason. The Conference Organizers do not take responsibility for any delegate failing to insure.
