Registration fees are in Euros and a 10% VAT rate is applied to all in-person registration. Certificates of participation will be available on-line following the conference for registered delegates who actively participated.

For a variety of reasons, ISCB/ECCB strongly prefers that scientific research accepted for oral presentation be presented in-person at the conference venue.  Of course, we understand that some presenters will have good reasons to avoid in-person attendance. ISCB/ECCB will grant remote presentation options for reasons associated to maternity/paternity leave, care for a family member, personal/medical disability, sickness, financial hardship, or potential visa problems.  If your research is accepted for oral presentation and you are unable to present in person, ISCB/ECCB requires notification at the time of acceptance. You will be asked during your confirmation of participation to confirm your in-person participation. If unable to participate you will need to request a waiver by writing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Talks will be broadcast live through the virtual platform for participants.


All presenters will be required to provide a pre-recorded talk for the virtual platform library in advance of the conference. The pre-recorded talk will be available shortly after the live presentation to provide faster and more seamless access to the conference content for virtual participants.
