General information

Registration for the EMS Annual Meeting 2021 is by payment of the appropriate registration fee. There is no waiving of registration fees except for scientists receiving support.

Registration fees cover access to all scientific and networking events.

Early registration rate

  • When registering for the early registration rate, there are two payment options: (a) by credit card or (b) by bank transfer.

Standard registration rate

  • You can register online until the end of the conference, but you can only pay by credit card.

Registration fees

Remark on VAT: while in-person conferences invoice registration fees with the value-added tax (VAT) of the country where the event takes place, fully virtual participation has by EU law a different regulation. The prices below are all net prices. The VAT in the invoices and payments will be added as follows and depends on (a) the country of residence of the attendee and (b) whether they apply an institutional invoice to their employer or a personal invoice:

  • Institutional invoice for German institutions: 19% German VAT will be added to the net prices given below and the gross amount must be paid.
  • Institutional invoice for institutions from EU countries excl. Germany: the institution's VAT ID must be provided. Then, the reverse-charge procedure will be applied. The invoiced amount stays net and the institution is obliged to settle the VAT in their country.
  • Institutional invoice for institutions from outside the EU: the reverse-charge procedure will be applied. The invoiced amount stays net and the institution is obliged to settle the VAT in their country.
  • Personal invoices, residency Germany: 19% German VAT will be added to the net prices given below and the gross amount must be paid.
  • Personal invoices, residency EU excl. Germany: the OSS procedure will be applied. Copernicus will use the VAT rate of the country of residence of the attendee. This VAT rate will be added to the net prices below when issuing the gross invoice amount to be paid. Copernicus will centrally settle these foreign-country VAT amounts with the German authorities.
  • Personal invoices, residency outside the EU: this is not possible. Attendees from outside the EU must apply an institutional invoice.

Terms and conditions


  • Pre-registration at early registration must be accompanied by payment. Otherwise, it will not be processed and the standard registration rates will be applied.
  • Registering and paying the corresponding registration fee is personal, assigned to a single user account, and not transferable.
  • Registration for the conference implies the acceptance of the rules of conduct.
  • Registration is only possible when accepting the data protection agreement. A Copernicus Office user account is necessary in order to register. For participants without existing account, an account needs to be created.
  • Changes to registration invoices are only possible with regard to the invoice address or order references. Any such claims must be received by Copernicus Meetings no later than 6 weeks after the last day of the conference. Later requests cannot be considered.
  • Changes to the registration rate selected in the finalized registration form, including received invoice, are only possible for unpaid invoices. In this case, the attendee is asked to cancel the registration order and to place a new one through the registration form, including the correct registration rate. Please note that the deadline for early registration also applies in these cases.

  • Registration fees are not refundable in case the conference has to be cancelled because of a force majeure.
  • There is no reason (including but not limited to illness) for registration cancellation that makes the above-mentioned deadline for cancellations inapplicable.
