Personal page
Paper and session proposers will receive notice of acceptance in July 2022. We will send information on the final registration, payment, and accommodation in the fall of 2022. These e-mails and other information about your registration can also be found on your personal page.

On the website you can log on to your personal page. After the pre-registration you will receive a log-in and password. With these you can log on to your personal page. The personal page shows all registration information we have for you and a log of the e-mails we have sent to date.
The advantage is that you can always check what information we have sent you and when.
Sometimes our e-mail messages disappear in spam filters, but you can always retrieve the information in these mails through this personal page. You also need to log on with the password/log-in combination to upload your paper and for the final registration and payment (information on payment will follow in the fall of 2022). Please note that you cannot make changes to this page. If you want to change any information, please contact the conference secretariat.
