Registration and on-site registration

Registration is open! The deadline for registration is 15th May 2018.

Registration for the 8th RBC closes on 15th of May 2018. Early registration fee is valid only for registrations, completed until 1st May, and payed on-time (during the validity of the invoice). Participants, registered after 1st of May 2018, will not be able to present their posters, and their abstracts will not be included in the book of abstracts. They should also settle their conference fee by the first day of the conference or alternatively during on-site registration.

Registration is possible through this link and has two steps:

1st step: create a RBC2018 account
2nd step: register for the conference

In the first step of the registration, you will be asked for some personal information in order to create your RBC2018 account. At the end of the register form, make sure to "Create account as" "Author", otherwise you will not be able to submit your abstracts (if you miss it, please send us an email and we will fix it for you). You can edit your other information later if desired: just sign into your account and click "My profile" below your username.

After logging into your RBC2018 account, you can access the conference registration via this link or by clicking "Registration-payment" on the page header.
Here, select your conference fee and click "Register".
Now, select all excursions which you are interested in, and leave us the VAT number of your institution under "special requests" (we need this in order to send you the invoice for conference fee payment). Also, write down any special requests you might have (if you plan to arrive by plain, please let us know here), and click "Register".
Check the details, click on "Send notification of payment" and then click "Continue". In a few days, you will be sent an invoice via e-mail.
