Registration Information

Registration is closed.


The registration for the Fermi 2017 Symposium requires three steps:

  1. Create a Indico user account if you don't have on
  2. Fill-in the registration page using your Indico account
  3. Pay the registration fee
  4. Submit an abstract for your planned contribution

Details on each step:

1. Create an Indico user account

You can login via various options like Kerberos or institutional account, Google etc - go to https://login.cern.ch
Usually the simplest way is the direct login via your email.


2. Fill-in the registration page

Go to our Fermi2017 Indico "Registration page" (see Menu bar on the left). There are four boxes to fill:

2.1 Personal Data: In the default case, your user name and address should be taken from your Indico account. You simply need to add your professional title, and pick your home country.

2.2 Payment:

If you are a student, you should change the line in the pull-down menu, otherwise nothing to do here. Classification as student is meant to be for everyone before getting his/her PhD degree.

The registration fee is as follows:

Payment date Nominal Students
< Sep. 9, 2017 400 Euro 250 Euro
> Sep. 9, 2017 500 Euro 320 Euro

Cancellation policy: Cancellations must be in writing and received no later than September 31, 2017. There is a 100 Eur cancellation fee. Registrants who cancel beyond this date or fail to attend the symposium will forfeit the entire fee.


2.3 Social Program:

Please, indicate your choice for the preferred tour on the free Wednesday afternoon - this is needed to pre-arrange the tours. Within the boundaries of the number of ordered busses per tour there will be the chance to change your choice until the tour starts.


2.4. Preferred Session:

Please, indicate the preferred session where you want your presentation to be scheduled. The SOC reserves the right to re-allocate your presentation if it deems more appropriate.

Once you are done with all 4 boxes, hit the "Register" button. This will provide a summary of your registration (which you should check and can edit at any later stage), and also provides the payment box, detailed below. If you choose to pay later, please store the link given at the bottom of the page, so you can return to the payment stage directly.


3. Pay the registration fee

There are two ways to pay the registration fee - see below. After hitting the "Registration" button as described above, you'll get a summary of your previous input, and an "Invoice" box. You need to accept the terms, and hit "Checkout", which brings you to a separate page with the pull-down menu for the selection of the two payment options.

3.1 Wire transfer

This is likely the preferred option for all Europeans, as it comes without fees. Below are the relevant details:

Account Holder: Congresservice Alpin Convention GmbH
Bank: Deutsche Bank AG
IBAN: DE58 7007 0024 0977 9224 00
Reason of payment: Fermi2017, [your name], [your institute abbreviation]

More details:
Account holder Physical address: Bahnhofstrasse 30, D-82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany
Physical address of Bank: Bahnhofstraße 41, D-82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany

Make sure you add the reason of payment, otherwise your payment cannot be assigned properly.

Once we have received your payment, we will accept your registration.

3.2 Credit Card

If you select the "Credit Card" option, you get a new box with the link to our external service provider. Credit card payments will be managed via a Swiss banking company, so you should have no worries about data security (in particular, we are not storing any information on our MPE-server!).

Once you hit "Pay now", you first can chose between Visa and Mastercard, and then have to provide card details. Once you press the "Pay XXX Euro" button (where XXX stands for the amount as given in the table above), you are done and will get an instantaneous acceptance email.


4. Submit abstract

Use the abstract navigation link on the left side of the main page. Note that you can edit/change your abstract arbitrarily often until the deadline (Sep. 9th, 23:59 UT). There is a 200 word limit for the abstract text.

It is very(!) unlikely that the SOC can/will assign more than one talk to a participant. Thus, if you submit more than one abstract, the SOC appreciates your preference wrt. poster/talk selection.
