Delays in issuing invoices and payment confirmations

February, 25 2020

Due to the large number of last-minute registrations of authors during the last several days, there have been delays in issuing the invoices as well as payment confirmation in the ConfTool system. The invoices and ConfTool confirmations are issued manually, hence the participants whose payment was received should get the confirmation and the invoice before the end of this week (February 28).

Thank you for your understanding, and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
