The application deadline will be on Wednesday 13th September, 23:59 CET. Applications are to be submitted through the registration form. Member organisations should clearly indicate the order of preference (priority) of the delegates if they register two. Please note that there are limited spaces for the seminar, and we can only guarantee one representative per organisation. We are therefore also only accepting a maximum of two registrations per member organisation.
LYMEC reserves the right to charge a late cancellation fee (€ 50) for all cancellations made later than 2 weeks ahead of congress. Thus, any cancellation after Friday the 29th of September is subject to a fee. Moreover, LYMEC charges a no-show fee (€ 100). Any late cancellations and no shows are potentially occupying the spots for people on the waiting list and is a financial burden for LYMEC.
Please note that there is a separate registration for the congress.
Bookings are closed for this event.
