1How many lectures am I able to give?
Each author can give up to a maximum of 2 lectures. The cost for the second lecture is €40.

There can be up to 4 authors. €20 will be added per each author to the registration fee. E.g.
- Early registration fee (before March 6th): €90 + 1 author (€20) = €110. More authors: €90 + 4 authors (€20 x 4= €80) = €170.
- Late registration fee (after March 6th): €140 + 1 author (€20) = €160. More authors: €140 + 4 authors (€20 x 4= €80) = €220.
3I am a doctoral candidate. Do I have any discount?
There is a special price for doctoral candidates. Early registration €60 and late registration €80 for single authors. For multi-author presentations, the highest academic degree of their authors will be taken into consideration.
4 How much is it if all the authors of one lecture attend the congress?
All the authors of one presentation who take part in the congress will be considered as lecturers. Therefore, each one has to pay their full registration fee (€90). It will not be necessary to pay the additional cost of second author. That is to say, two author-lecturers with their respective registration payments.
