Terms and Conditions
Please note that it is the responsibility of all participants to take out full insurance to cover all expenses, including registration fee, in the event that they are unable to travel for whatever reason.

Registered participants who fail to collect their proceedings during the conference will only be sent the CD-ROM part of the proceedings by standard airmail.

Payment options: Credit card payment (VISA or Mastercard only) is the preferred option. A Bankers Draft (drawn on a UK bank) or a UK Bank Cheque (made payable to Civil-Comp Ltd) are also allowed if a credit card is not available. We cannot accept payment at the conference.

Bank transfers: We do NOT recommend the use of bank transfers. A bank transfer handling charge of 40 UK Pounds will be added if you intend to pay by bank transfer. You must request a pro-forma invoice first by completing the registration form and ticking the box "invoice before payment". We will then send you a pro-forma invoice with our bank details. Our bank details have changed from previous years. Please note that a bank transfer must be made in full without any deductions for bank charges (neither domestic nor foreign charges). Upon receipt of your transfer we will send you a full invoice as confirmation of your registration. We cannot issue full invoices before payment. Please note that bank transfers often take a very long time. If you choose to pay a particular fee level that is time-restricted (for example 245 pounds which is valid until 1 Dec) your bank transfer must reach our accounts before this date. Should it reach our accounts after this date, we will request that you pay the difference.

All amounts are in UK Pound Sterling. We cannot accept payments in any other currency.
