Changes to registration: Changes may be made to workshop choices after booking (that is, cancellation of one workshop and replacement by another) for an administrative fee of €25, plus any difference in price between the choice of workshops. Workshops and social events may be added to your original registration (subject to availability) at any time, without an administrative fee. All changes are subject to availability.

Cancellation of attendance: If you wish to cancel your attendance at the conference, a refund, less an administration fee of €150, will be made, provided your cancellation is made in writing to EMWA head office before 1 October 2018. No refunds will be made after this date.

Accompanying persons: Accompanying persons wishing to attend the opening networking event and welcome reception, and to join the EMWA lunch and coffee breaks, must be registered for the conference by the EMWA member they are accompanying. The fee for registered accompanying persons is €170.

For registered disabled delegates, one registered accompanying carer may attend free of charge. EMWA reserves the right to ask for proof of disability (e.g. national registration certificate) for delegates claiming the reduced rate for their accompanying carer. Accompanying persons (including carers) may not attend workshop, seminar, ESS, symposium, or other paid events at the conference, but are welcome to attend all open sessions, breaks, and meals.

Events open to non-members

Introduction to medical writing seminar: This event is open to the public and is free of charge. However, attendees are asked to register in advance, and should note that refreshments are available only to paying conference delegates. Please let us know in advance if you decide not to attend this event, so that we can offer the place to someone else.

Social events: For details and charges for all social events, see the Social Programme page.


At the time of registration, delegates may choose between immediate payment by credit card or to be invoiced. Invoices are to be settled by bank transfer in euro. All fees are payable in advance. Full payment is due by 2 November 2018. If payment has not been received, EMWA reserves the right to request payment on-site at the late registration rate.
