FAQs

Conference dinner

If you booked participation in the conference dinner when registering, please pay the fee for the conference dinner separately by 1 September 2020. This fee need not be paid if you are not taking part in the conference in person, but rather by means of an online offer.

 

Rescission from registration

Withdrawal is to be declared in writing to the organiser. Any further right of rescission shall not apply (Sect. 312g (2) sent. 1 no. 9 BGB [German Civil Code]).

 

Participants who have already registered for the “B/ORDERING CULTURES” event can withdraw from the contract up to 21 August 2020 and be reimbursed for amounts already paid.

 

In case of a withdrawal between 22 August 2020 and 21 September 2020, you will be reimbursed for the registration fees paid, less a share of the cost coverage of €20.00 for expenses already incurred on the part of the organiser, and, if applicable, the amount paid for the conference dinner.

 

In case of a withdrawal after 22 September 2020, the registration fees paid cannot be reimbursed.

 

Online participation

In case of participation in the conference without travel but rather by means of the options for online participation offered by the organiser, the registration fees are to be paid based on the rate applicable upon registration, without the contribution for the conference dinner.

 

Cancellation fees in case of cancellation of the conference

Should the conference be cancelled due to containment measures because of the Covid-19 pandemic or other health hazards, cancellation expenses for travel and accommodation cannot be taken over by the organiser.

 

Exceptions can be applied for in case of a cancellation of the conference due to an administrative order by those participants for whom the Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION agreed in writing in advance to subsidise their travel and accommodation expenses from funding from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Association) or the European University Viadrina. This applies solely for unavoidable cancellation costs after examination by the competent bodies, insofar as costs can be settled pursuant to the applicable regulations of the DFG or the European University Viadrina respectively.
