The ICPS 2019 Organising Committee has opened registrations one final time to allow for a participation possibility for those who are still interested but were unable to sign up between the first and second rounds.
As all the places for ICPS Cologne are already filled, this final round is based on a waiting list, ordered according to date and time of registration, as it is expected that some already accepted participants might have to renounce their place for various possible reasons, a phenomenon observed every year.
So, if you haven’t signed up and want to attend the biggest IAPS event, this is your opportunity to register!
