How to make a hotel reservation

To make a hotel reservation, it is necessary to fill in the on-line Accommodation Form  .

Please note that the online Accommodation Form is only accessible with a password. Simply fill in the Personal Data Form and a password will be sent to you. Your password is the same for all online forms. Reservations will be processed on a “first come, first-served” basis. Due to heavy demand and the fact that distribution of rooms in many hotels is limited, please book your accommodation as soon as possible.

Reservation confirmation

Full pre-payment is required to guarantee the reservation. After the full payment is received, your hotel reservation will be confirmed in writing by e-mail.

Extras are to be paid directly at the hotel reception before departure. Hotel can ask you to guarantee your extrases by credit card or by cash at your arrival. In case you share the room with another congress participant, it is possible to pay only half of the hotel expenses. Invoice can be issued upon request after the congress. Please include this request as a note in your registration form.
