You will have to pay your due

  • registration fee, your optional
  • post-conference excursion fee to Eger, as well as your
  • conference hotel expenses,if you have reserved your hotel with us (ie. if you stay in Károly Róbert Hostel).

The registration fee covers a welcome reception with wine, the conference excursion, wine tasting with cultural programme  and a conference dinner as well as the costs of running the meeting, and it includes the (within EU, redeemable) 27 % VAT prescribed by tax laws in Hungary. 

  • The early registration fee is 280 EUR, if received before the extended deadline of July 14, 2017.
  • After July 14, 2017 the late registration fee of 320 EUR applies.
  • Hotel costs are estimated to be 25 EUR/night/single (or 20 EUR/night/person/double) provided that you reserve housing with us in the Károly Róbert Hostel. This price includes VAT and local taxes.
  • The post-conference excursion to Eger is organized if more than 10 participants sign up for it. The cost  will be 40 EUR including transportation, sightseeing, lunch with wine tasting as well as appropriate taxes.
  • We recommend to pay your registration fee + housing expenses by bank transfer before July 14, 2017, to keep your total participation costs as low as reasonably achievable.

    conference fee for students and participants in need, keeping in mind in particular participants from Eastern Europe.

Recently, Hungary joined the Single Euro Payment Zone (SEPA).

Please kindly pay attention to this and use the approporiate SWIFT code, depending on the country of origin of your wire transfer.
