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.
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.
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 July 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.
