3rd - 5th April 2018: World Symposium on Climate Change and Biodiversity (WSCCB-2018), Manchester, UK

Registration and Conditions of Participation

Registrations are now open and are possible until the 10th January 2018. Regrettably, logistical limitations mean that registrations after the deadline may not be possible. Since the space for posters and the time for presentations is limited, delegates are advised to register as soon as possible. The organisers will notify any interested delegate or organisation in case there  are any limitations with time for presentations or space for posters. Registered delegates will then receive further details on the payment of the fees and updated information on the preparations for the event. The decision as to which papers will be accepted for presentation will be taken by the Chairperson, following consultation with the organising committee. Participants registering to the event will do so under the condition that they will cover their own travel, accommodation and incidental costs (e.g. visa fees) related to their trip to Manchester.  

A discounted fee of Euro 300 (professionals) or Euro 150 (for students) plus 19% VAT, will be charged to those who register until 20th November 2017 (early bird registration). After that,  delegates will need to pay the full fee of  Euro 350 and Euro 200 respectively  (plus 19% VAT). The fee includes lunches and coffee breaks on 4th-5th April 2018 as well as the evening reception on 4th April 2018. Furthermore, the fee includes a on-line copy of the "Handbook of Climate Change and Biodiversity", to be made available to the authors.

The standard and official procedures for registrations are listed below. In order to avoid misunderstandings and wasting time, delegates are kindly requested to register only if they are seriously considering attending the event. The registration is a binding document, so this procedures needs to be carefully considered. Please do not register if you are unsure you will attend the event, or do not yet have the resources to attend.

Standard procedures: 

  • 1. delegates register at the web site of the event
  • 2. once this is done, delegates will get an invoice (professional rate or student rate)
  • 3. delegates settle the invoice and send a proof of payment as required
  • 4. delegates, who need a formal letter of invitation, send to the organising team a draft text as they need it, and which includes all their personal details, title of the event and of their presentation. No letters will be sent to non-registered delegates.

We can only consider for the book the inputs of registered delegates, also to be fair with all others. 

This is a self-funded event and the organisers are unable to pay any travel or accommodation costs of any kind. Letters of invitation to enter the United Kingdom can only be sent to bona fide, registered delegates, whose papers have been accepted and who have paid their fees, and need a document to show their employers. For cancellations of registrations up to 15 days before the event, a 50% refund may be made. For cancellations afterwards, no refunds will be possible.
