Registration

Registration for ESB 2021 is solely possible via the online registration form.

Due to the decision to hold ESB 2021 as a fully hybrid conference we have changed the registration fees for virtual participation only.

Participants who have already registered for the face-to-face fee will be contacted from the conference secretary soon. We will transfer the face-to-face fees to the virtual early fee and refund the difference. Please do not register again, you will receive a notification shortly and receive a new confirmation/invoice as well as a credit note.

The online registration system will take you step-by-step through the registration process. Upon completion of the registration, you will receive a confirmation e-mail.

Information concerning YSF workshops, bookable during the registration process, will be added later at the webpage.

Conference Status with respect to the Coronavirus pandemic

In the last two weeks, despite the great progress of the vaccination program, the number of coronavirus infections in Portugal has risen significantly due to the Delta variant of the virus. The nationwide 7-day incidence of 110.2 (as of July 1, 2021; source: Johns Hopkins University) is well above the critical limit of 50 newly infected persons per 100,000 inhabitants, per week. 

Taking into consideration the health and safety of all presenters, exhibitors and attendees, and the importance of assuring the quality of the Conference Program, the Organising Committee has taken the difficult decision to move ESB2021 to a fully virtual format, from September 5-9, 2021.
