Registration and payment

The registration is handled via the CERN INDICO system:

Once you have registered, your registration will appear in Indico as “awaiting payment”. Payments can be made by credit card or by bank transfer, as detailed below. The status of the registration in INDICO will be changed to “complete” by our administrative staff after your payment is received. Note that it may take about one week for the update of the status.

Note that the early fee can be applied only if the payment is received by 1 March 2018. After this date, the full fee applies, also for registrations made before 1 March. For the participants whose institution requires an invoice before making the payment, the early fee will be kept also after 1 March, if the invoice is requested before 1 March.

The registration closes on 1 May 2018. On-site registration and payment will not be possible.

The registration fee for Participants includes the five lunches from Monday 14 May to Friday 18 May, all coffee breaks and participation to all social events (welcome drink, poster session wine&cheese, concert, and banquet). Excursions are not included.

Fiscal Receipts/Invoices

For the Italian fiscal law there is a difference between “fiscal receipt” and “invoice”. Once one is issued, it cannot be amended nor exchanged with the other. Please ask your Institute administration which one you need for the reimbursement before paying the fee. Kindly note that:
  • The fiscal receipt can be addressed to the participant c/o Institution or Affiliation.
  • The invoice can be only addressed to the Institution (the Institution VAT number is requested) and the payment must be made directly by the own Institution and not by the individual participant.  If, in order to make the payment, the Institution needs the invoice in advance,  kindly send us your request by e-mail ( as soon as possible, indicating the invoice detailed header (complete address and VAT number of the Institution that makes the payment).
All fiscal receipts and invoices will be issued after the payment is received and they will be distributed to participants upon arrival (with the exception of the invoices requested in advance by the home institutions).

INFN Participants only/ Partecipanti INFN
