Refunds – Non-Authors

General attendees (non‐authors) are eligible for a registration refund if the refund is requested in writing prior to October 8, 2013 and will incur a processing fee of $50. There are no registration refunds after October 9, 2013.

Author No Shows

EMBS enforces a “no show” policy. Any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author attend and present the paper at the conference. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend the Conference will be subscribed to a “No Show List”, compiled by the Society. The “no-show” papers will be removed from the website and noted as “Author unavailable for presentation.” The “No Show List” will also be made available to all EMBS conference organizers, who can reject submissions from these authors in the following two years, based on their past negative impact on an EMBS conference.  If your paper was selected for Student Paper Competition (SPC) and if you are only presenting during that SPC session, your paper will be pulled from the program and Xplore as no substitutes are permitted.

If you will be absent or require a substitution, please use this form.

All attendees – author or non-author

Cancellations must be made in writing by downloading the no-show form on the website and sending it by email to d.bernstein@ieee.org (no phone calls will be accepted). Please allow four to six weeks after the conference for the refund to be provided. Registration fees cannot be transferred to another attendee.
