The fees for the Conference do not include any provisions for the insurance of participants against personal injury, sickness, theft, or property damage. This also applies to any event held during the Conference period. Participants and accompanying persons are advised to arrange for any insurance they consider necessary. Neither the Organizing Committee nor the agencies or partners involved in the organization of the Conference assume any responsibility for loss, injury or damage to persons or belongings, whatever the cause may be. Access to health care is costly for non- residents and we therefore recommend that participants arrange their own travel insurance (health and accident coverage). We also recommend that you arrange insurance for lost luggage and other incidents.
