Registration fees

Scientific attendees

Early registration rates are available until 28 February 2019 and provide two payment options: (a) by credit card or (b) by bank transfer. However, if you want to purchase an EGU membership while registering, the payment is by credit card only. Participants from most European countries can choose to receive their name badges by mail about 8–10 days prior to the conference if payment is received by 28 February 2019.

Standard registration rates are applied after 28 February 2019 and until the end of the conference. These rates can be paid online by credit card only or on site by credit card or cash. However, online registration in advance of the conference is strongly recommended.

Non-scientific attendees

In addition to the scientific attendees, there are four special types of attendees as follows:

  • Persons taking care of attendees with reduced mobility (PRM) are free of charge. Their registration can only be acquired on site at the registration help desk in combination with a paid scientific attendee with reduced mobility.
  • Kids of paid scientific attendees under the age of 18 are free of charge. Their registration can only be acquired on site at the registration help desk.
  • Visiting non-scientific partners taking care of children under the age of 16 have to pay a registration fee that can only be acquired on site at the registration help desk and only in combination with the partner being a paid scientific attendee. Non-scientific partners without taking care of a child under the age of 16 have to register on normal registration rates.
  • Side event visitors have to pay a registration fee that can only be acquired on site at the registration help desk with a validity reduced to the respective day.
  • Please note: translators are seen as active participants and have to pay regular fees (see above). Background: a) one must be a scientist to be able to translate the science appropriately and b) the official conference language is English.

Sunday 12:00–20:00
