Please click here to register to EWRR 2018

Registrations for the EWRR are only possible with a submitted abstract! Please use the same account for the abstract submission and registration.

Final registration will only be confirmed if the abstract is accepted. Should the abstract not be accepted the registration fees will be reimbursed.

Please keep in mind that registration is not the same as abstract submission. Before registering for the workshop, you must first apply by sending an abstract.

You will be notified by the EWRR Congress Secretariat by 22 December 2017 whether your abstract has been accepted for presentation - either oral or as poster presentation. Once your abstract is accepted, your registration will be confirmed.

Please register early, as this meeting becomes oversubscribed fast.

The EWRR Workshop requires the full data for each individual participant, including updated postal address and e-mail address. Incomplete registrations cannot be processed.

Confirmation of the registration will be sent only when the corresponding abstract is accepted and the payment is received.

While registering online, it is possible to create a user-account, enabling you to come back to your data to update them.
