Instructions for online registration

  • Please ensure you have read and understood the cancellation policy on registration conditions as provided on the website.
  • All information should be typed in upper and lower case (e.g. John Smith).
  • You will have the opportunity to review and edit any registration details before the final stage of payment.
  • 60 minutes is the maximum time allowance to complete the form before the system times out.
  • The current versions of Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer are the preferred platforms for use of the forms.

Terms and conditions


  • Early registration must be accompanied by payment. Otherwise, it will not be processed and the standard registration rates will be applied.
  • Registrations are for the persons specified and are non-transferable.
  • Changes to registration invoices are only possible with regard to the invoice address or order references. Any such claims must be received by Copernicus Meetings no later than 6 weeks after the last day of the conference. Later requests cannot be considered.
  • Changes to the registration rate selected in the finalized registration form, including received invoice, can only be realized for unpaid invoices. Then, the attendee is asked to cancel the registration order and to place a new order through the registration form, including the correct registration rate. Please note that the deadline for early registration is also valid in such cases.

Cancellation policy

  • Registration fees will only be refunded if the notice of cancellation is received by Copernicus Meetings before 16 March 2017. The cancellation fee is €50.
  • Cancellations after 16 March 2017 and no-shows are not eligible for a refund.
  • There is no reason (including but not limited to illness, inability to travel, visa application rejection, travel restrictions, etc.) for registration cancellation that makes the above-mentioned deadline for cancellations inapplicable.


The organizers cannot accept liability for personal accident, loss, or damage to private property, which may be incurred as a result of the participation in the EGU General Assembly 2017. Participants are, therefore, advised to arrange appropriate insurance coverage. This should apply not only to travel but also to cancellation costs.


By registering, participants acknowledge and consent that during their attendance at the EGU General Assembly 2017 their image or voice may be recorded via video, photograph, or by any other means ("recorded") by an official of the conference.
