Cancellation and Refund

We understand that unforeseen events may change a person’s ability to attend the conference. If you have registered and are unable to attend, you may transfer your registration to a colleague within your organization or to your co-author. To cancel registration, a cancellation request must be submitted in writing to the Conference organiser. Cancellation received on or before 30 September 2017 (China/Hong Kong Time) will incur an administration fee. The refund with 80% of the registration fee will be made in a cheque in Hong Kong dollars. If the cancellation request is not received before the cancellation deadline (30 September 2017), no refund will be issued. After this date, refunds cannot be granted due to contractual obligations and guarantees.
