You may only register online via this website. You can pay the participation fee by bank transfer (invoice) or credit card.

Please transfer the participation fee within 14 working days, but no later than 20 September 2017. Your registration is binding only after we have received your payment. You are obliged to pay regardless of whether you attend the event.

Entering the country: visa

EU nationals must have a valid passport to enter the Federal Republic of Germany. They do not require a visa.

Generally speaking, all other foreigners require a visa for stays in Germany. You find an overview on visa requirements here.

Invitation letters for participants have been issued after payment of the registration fee is confirmed. As a rule, missions require between two and ten working days to decide on an application for a short stay visa. During the peak travel season there may be a waiting period for making an application to a German mission. Therefore, it is recommended to register for the conference and to apply for a visa at your earliest convenience.

Find also more information at the website of the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.

The symposium is endorsed by the IUPAC.  IUPAC endorsement implies that entry visas are granted to all bona fide chemists provided application is made not less than three months in advance. If a visa is not granted one month before the meeting, the IUPAC Secretariat should be notified without delay by the applicant.
