Policy on social media

By registering for the 7th IATIS Conference 2021 you consent to: 

Authorize UPF and IATIS to mention your name and information about your presentation on social media and websites to advertise and report on the conference for the benefit of the broader academic community.

Authorize UPF to video-record your presentation and/or participation during the course of this event, to stream it live as well as to make it available in the 7th IATIS Conference online space for the duration of one month starting from the first day of the conference, for the exclusive access of officially registered conference delegates. 

Accept and agree to non-disclosure of any excerpt (be it text, photo, slides, video, voice, data) of any presentation (in any format) delivered live within the framework of the 7th IATIS Conference, and made available in the 7th IATIS Conference online space, unless given the author’s prior and documented consent.

In accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation, Regulation (EU) 2016/679, we summarize our data protection information: 

Data controller: Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Pl. de la Merce, 12. 08002 Barcelona, Spain. Tel. (+34) 935 422 000. 

Purpose: managing seminars, congresses and other similar events organized by the University as well as its dissemination.  

Legal basis: your consent.  

Recipients: Pompeu Fabra University and companies providing ancillary IT services, upon the signature of contracts that preserve privacy. Where appropriate, by institutions co-organizers of the act.  

Rights: you can access your data; request their rectification, deletion and in certain cases their portability; you may object to their processing and apply for their limitation, by writing to the University manager (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). You can contact the UPF data protection officer (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) for any queries, or if you feel that your rights are not properly respected. Should you not be satisfied, you may file a complaint with the Catalan Data Protection Authority. 

Submissions policy: one submission per author only

In order to give equal opportunities and enjoy as many speakers as possible, each delegate may submit only one proposal as main author. Only panel and workshop organizers are allowed to submit a separate abstract if they wish to present a paper or a poster.

1. We strongly discourage two or more submissions by the same author

2. We strongly discourage two or more submissions of papers by the same group of multiple authors under different speaker names.

Language Policy

All abstracts/proposals must be submitted in English for peer-review by the Advisory Board but speakers will be given the choice to present in English, Spanish or Catalan. The possibility of providing interpreting will be assessed according to available resources and is not guaranteed.

Non-refundable registration policy

There will be no refund of fees in case of cancellations. Participants are strongly advised to take out an insurance policy to cover travel and registration costs in case they have to cancel participation in the conference.

Refunds for cancellation owing to denial of visa will be considered on a case-by-case basis, subject to the submission of appropriate documentary evidence, and must be made in writing by 30 September 2021. No refund applications will be considered after this date. Refunds will exclude any administration fee and all bank charges incurred.

Conference attendees affected by a visa denial or a Covid-19-related travel ban arising after the payment of their registration fee (from whichever authority in country of departure or arrival) will be able to convert their presential registration into a "remote participation registration". The difference between the two fees will be refunded in the same terms and subject to the same conditions as for denied visas, and considered on a case-by-case basis.


At the time of publishing this Policy, the remote registration fee is estimated to be 50% of the fee originally paid by the delegate. It includes the possibility for delegates to deliver their presentation remotely and to follow the live plenary sessions and some of the parallel sessions.
