FAQ

About the selection of oral presentations

The number of abstracts submitted exceeds the number of slots for oral presentations. As such, an expert panel will select a limited number of abstracts for an oral presentation.

Any abstract we have to decline will be accepted for a poster session.

Do you offer student grants?

No, we do not offer student grants. However, to support students, we do offer reduced entrance fees. When you register as a student, the reduced fees will automatically be applied.

How can I deregister?

When you register, you will receive a confirmation e-mail after. At the bottom of this e-mail you will find a link where you can change your registration. Click this link to visit a page where you can deregister (see image below). After deregistration, please contact the organisation to arrange your refund. Please note that terms and conditions apply to refunds.

Is it possible to pay by bank transfer or invoice?

Yes, it is possible to pay by bank transfer or invoice. However, if possible by any means, please use the website form with creditcard or Paypal. This is for the both of us by far the easiest option. If these options will not work for you, the only alternative payment method the hosting university offers, is to send you an invoice. This will go in a few steps:

  1. Please inform us of your registration options. For each registrant, provide the information as required by the form on the website: Full contact details, academic / student / company, conference dinner (partner also attending?) and social event. Send this information to

  2. Please inform us on any payment details of the organisation paying the registration: VAT number, Chamber of Commerce registration number – if possible, full contact details on the contact person (Dutch or English speaking – please), budget codes or reference numbers within your organisation, and procedure on how to submit the invoice to your organisation (e.g. our university only accepts pdf send to a specific e-mail address). PLEASE DO CHECK your details thoroughly.

    Please send the above information to eucomc2017@mattch.eu.

  3. We will send you an invoice. The invoice will be send by e-mail to the e-mail address of the contact person you provided above. Please process the invoice at your earliest convenience.
  4. Please do inform us once the payment has been made, including details required to track it. We will then contact our administration to anticipate the arrival of the payment in order to be able to process your registration with due haste.
  5. After we have received the payment – and only then -, we will the participants be registered to the conference. We will confirm the registration(s) over the e-mail to the contact person on the invoice.

This procedure may take a few weeks. Please do contact us should any questions arise. You can contact us at eucomc2017@mattch.eu.

Something went wrong with my payment. What can I do?

Occasionally, a payment does not go down well for some reason. In due time, you will receive an e-mail to complete your registration. If not, please do not hesitate to contact Professor Dr. Tromp of the EuCOMC 2017 organisation.

What are the guidelines on the posters?

The panels we use to display the posters are A0 portrait size, rest is up to you!

What is included in the ticket?

The ticket includes the entrance fee, welcome reception, lunch and (optionally) a canal tour by boat. Billable extras include a social event and a conference dinner. Excluded are e.g. travel fare, hotels, breakfast and dinner. However, several hotels do offer reduced tariffs for EuCOMC participants. Please look at our accommodation page for details.

Who counts as a student?

Registration fees depend on the position you hold. Bachelor students, master students, and PhDs can register as students. Post-docs and anybody working at a public research institute or university counts as members of the academic staff. Anybody else counts as a company representative. Note that only registration fees differ, whereas the cost of social events and conference dinner are equal to all participants.
