  • Registration fee can be paid only by bank transfer. Payment information will be sent to participants upon acceptance of their application. For specific dates and fees, see below.
  • ICPS attendees can contribute to the scientific portion of the programme. In the registration form, you will be asked whether you wish to hold a lecture, present a poster, and/or give a talk at the TeSlam.
  • Number of attendees for each excursion is limited. Three identical drop-down menus are given for excursion selection. Please select one excursion in each menu, according to your preference. The organizing committee will then assign an excursion to everyone, taking into account everyone's wishes.

Scientific contribution

  • Due to obvious limitations, it may happen that not all lectures or posters get accepted. The Organizing Committee has a final word in this matter.
  • Participants wishing to present a lecture or poster at the conference will be required to submit an abstract. You will be able to do that in the registration form. Please use LaTeX syntax for any mathematical notation.
  • It is your duty to bring your posters already printed.

Our bank is a member of SEPA, but has only been for a relatively short time. If you are receiving messages about us not being a member of SEPA, that probably means that your bank has not updated their automatic payment systems. Unfortunately, this means that you will need to go to the bank office and do the transaction personally.
