Refunds for the Conference

The ISSS makes every effort to keep the costs of the annual meeting as low as possible.

For this reason, the ISSS cannot issue refunds outside the terms of its refund policy.

Prior to May 1 Refund minus $75 admin fee
May 1 to June 15 Refund of 50% of registration cost
June 15 to conference No refund
No shows at conference No refund

You should arrange appropriate travel or other insurance to cover any possibilities of loss through cancellation.

All requests for refunds must be submitted to

Changes to the category of registration will incur a $75 administration fee in addition to the new rate cost, to cover bank charges for refunds and administration.

If you are unable to attend, the registration can be transferred to another individual to take your place and that person may present your work.

If you do not attend the conference and have not transferred your place to another person, all conference materials and 2015 membership will be sent to you after the conference.
