FAQ

If I am registered and I have paid, but in the last minute I can't attend, what is the cancellation policy?

The cancellation of the purchase must be presented in writing in an email. The cancellations over the phone will not be taken into account.

The cancellations completed before the 15th of May 2018 included, will have a total refund of the purchase, except for a 10% of the amount. Said 10% is due secretary taxes.

The cancellations completed between the 16th of May 2018 and the 1st of June 2018, both included, will have a 50% refund of the amount of the purchase made.

After the 2nd of June 2018 included, cancellations and refunds will not be accepted.

 

Important:

All petitions of cancellation must be sent in writing (email) before the dates previously established to info@isms.gal

Can I attend the symposium as hearer even if I don't present any communication?

Yes, of course. In this kind of event there are two types of attendance, to present a lecture either oral (talk) or written (poster), or attend just as a hearer to learn and get prepared to participate in future congresses where to present your own lecture. Symposiums and congresses are a great place to learn and make new contacts for the future.

Is there any symposium attendance grant?

Directly from the symposium organization there is none. This year each university will decide if students will receive grants, so check with your faculty.

¿Should I register and pay before send the abstract?

No, it goes separately. First you must send the abstract of your lecture, and simultaneously you can register and pay the symposium. Also you can wait until you receive the acceptance of your lecture to register. Remember that the reduced rate is only until March 1, 2018

What language has to be used to write the abstract of the lecture?

You can choose between Spanish and English.

Is there a discount for unemployed attendants?

Yes, in the case of being unemployed and present the corresponding official documentation (document DARDO) you can access the student discount instead of the professional rate.
