Registration and Declaration of Consent

Participants register online. Registrations will be processed in order of receipt. Each registration will be confirmed by email. This confirmation makes the registration final.

With their registration, participants agree that photos or video recordings made at the event on behalf of the HLS FHNW may be used for the public relations work of the HLS FHNW (newsletter, internet, social media, website, etc).

Conference Fees

The conference fees include VAT. The price includes refreshments during breaks, lunch and aperitifs. Additional costs such as accommodation, travel expenses, meals outside of the event, etc. are not included in the conference fee.

Payment Arrangements

By registering, participants undertake to pay the conference fees on time. The conference fees can be paid by credit card or invoice. If the conference fee is not paid before the event, the organizer is entitled to exclude the participants from the conference.

Cancellation, postponement of events

If the conference cannot be held and a postponement is not possible, the conference fee will be refunded. Any further claims cannot be asserted.

If individual lectures or presentations cannot take place as part of the conference (e.g. because the speaker is ill), no claims can be derived from this.

If the on-site implementation is not possible due to an unforeseeable event that is beyond the control of the FHNW (natural disasters, pandemic, armed conflict), the organizers will consider an online format.

The organizer reserves the right to make program changes and will inform the participants about changes as soon as possible.

Cancellation of a definitive registration

If you cancel your registration up to June 30, 2024, you will be charged 50% of the conference fee. If the cancellation is made after June 30, 2024, 100% of the conference fees will be charged. It is possible to send a replacement person. Requests for cancellation or replacement must be made in writing by sending an email to the conference organizers.
