Conference Fee and Registration

REGISTRATION FEES

The Standard Fee is 380 € for early registration and 450 € for late registration after 30 April 2018. There is a special reduced rate of 190 € for Ph.D. students, which increases to 250 € after 30 April 2018.

The fee increases to 430 € after 30 April 2018.

These fees include all breaks, lunches, the welcome drink, a guided city tour and the conference banquet.

Financial support will be provided to a limited number of students and young postdocs, typically in the form of full or partial waiving of the conference fee. Support for travel or lodging expenses can be considered only for special cases. Applications for financial support must be addressed to lhcp2018@bo.infn.it together with a CV and a reference letter from a supervisor, no later than the 31st of March.
