General Information

Registration for the EMS Annual Meeting: European Conference for Applied Meteorology and Climatology 2017 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 events, refreshments during the coffee breaks and the icebreaker reception.

The EMS aims to make the Annual Meeting more sustainable and minimize the use of resources. During the abstract submission, authors were asked to indicate whether a printed programme book is needed. 70% of the authors indicated that they would not need a programme book any more. Thus, only a limited number of programme books is available on request.
Please be aware that the mobile app (continuous updates) and the EMS2017 website offer the option of generating and printing your own personal programme

BAMS Digital Edition

The American Meteorological Society offers 3-months access to the BAMS Digital Edition for all student registrations at the EMS2017. Young scientists who would like to receive a code for 3-months access to BAMS Digital Edition, will have to agree to have their email address forwarded to the AMS (tick the relevant box during the registration process).

Early registration rate

  • When registering for the early registration rate, there are two payment options: (a) by credit card or (b) by bank transfer.
  • Participants from most European countries can choose to receive their name badges by airmail about 8–10 days prior to the conference if payment is received by 23 July 2017.

Standard registration rate

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

  • 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, inability to travel, visa application rejection, travel restrictions, etc.) for registration cancellation that makes the above-mentioned deadline for cancellations inapplicable.
