Registration

Registration

The registration process includes two main aspects:

  • Conference Registration
  • Hotel Reservation

There is only one registration form that allows you to fill in the information concerning the conference, and also the request for hotel reservaton. The same form is also used to include the payment instructions that will be handled by Viagens Abreu, the official conference agency:

Viagens Abreu S.A. - Congress Department 
Avenida 25 de Abril, 2
2795 Linda-a-Velha Portugal
Phone: +351 21 415 6121 | Fax: +351 21 415 6383
Email: malmeida.lisboa@abreu.pt

Euro-Par 2005 has the following registration categories:

  • Early: until June 24, with lower conference fees and hotel room rates.
  • Late: after June 24 
  • After August 19, registration must be made on-site, at the Conference Desk.

Please note that the early registration deadline coincides with the final date for hotel reservation at special reduced rates. You should register and make your hotel reservation, at the official conference hotel, well before this date. After that date, room availability cannot be guaranteed.

Participant categories

There are two categories of participants:

  • Regular
  • Student: an evidence of full-time student status must be sent by FAX jointly with the registration form, and also presented at the local conference registration site.

Conference Fees


Until June 24 After June 24
Regular 390 euros 440 euros
Students 280 euros 330 euros

Conference fee includes lunches, coffee breaks, reception and conference banquet, tutorials, workshop, and a copy of the proceedings.

If you are an author, in the registration form you may request an extra page, at the cost of 50 euros.

An accompanying person may additionally take part in the social events, at the cost of 65 euros. This must be indicated on the registration form.

Student support

Euro-Par 2005 will provide some limited support for registration of full-time graduate students attending the conference. If you need to receive this support, please send an e-mail to the conference chair at europar05@di.fct.unl.pt indicating the reasons for your interest in the conference and why you would otherwise be unable to attend. Students with accepted contributions have higher chances to get support, however, any full-time student is qualified to apply. In addition to your letter, you need to send (by mail of fax) evidence of full-time student status, and a statement from your department that states either that no financial support is available or that a partial financial support will be provided.

Applications will be considered until the 24th June and will be subject to availability of funds for this purpose.

Accommodation

Hotel reservation should be made through the registration form. The beautiful Hotel Costa da Caparica is the official conference hotel for Euro-Par 2005 that has reserved a block of 200 rooms for the participants at a substantial discount over normal summer rates (see accommodations here). We can only guarantee these prices and reserves until June 24. After this date the hotels may be fully booked, because of the great demand. We suggest that you act promptly to register and reserve your room in the Hotel Costa da Caparica.

Payment

Payments can be made either by credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Amex, Diners), or through bank transfer (see Registration Form below), to Viagens Abreu, which is the company actually taking care of the payments.
