General Information

Badges
You will receive a personalised name badge when collecting your registration documents. During the congress, this badge must be clearly visible at all times and grants access to the scientific sessions, commercial exhibition and official networking events. Admission to the congress will not be allowed without badge identification.

Certificate of Attendance & CME Credits
EUROSPINE 2018 has been granted 15 European CME credits (ECMEC®s) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®).
CME credits are assigned to participants per half-day. To collect your CME points for your certificate you need to use the scanning stations and scan the barcode on your name badge, each half-day, at the following times:
morning between 08:00 and 11:00, afternoon between 13:30 and 16:30. Your certificate will be available for download via a personal link which the organisers will send via e-mail shortly after the congress.

Congress Language
The official language of the congress is English. No simultaneous translation will be provided.

Currency & ATM
Payment of congress-related matters such as registration fees and tickets for the networking programme will be handled in Euro (€) only.
Payments can be made in cash or via debit or credit card.
The closest ATM is located in the mall “Diagonal Mar”, across the street from the CCIB, on floor 0, close to Diagonal avenue and next to the Vapiano restaurant.

Smoking
We have a strict non-smoking policy at EUROSPINE 2018. Smoking inside the congress venue is prohibited. Smoking areas are available outside the main entrance of the congress centre.
In Spain smoking is prohibited in public buildings and public transport (including taxis), at workplaces, railway stations, discotheques, bars and restaurants. Tobacco consumption is also not allowed outside the grounds of hospitals, health centers, schools and kindergartens.
Smoking is permitted on terraces (e.g., restaurants), in one’s own home and balcony, in hotel rooms - if not prohibited by the owner - and in the fresh air with the exceptions mentioned above.

Insurance
The congress organisers will not assume any responsibility for accidents, losses or damages, as well as for delays or modifications in the programme, caused by unforeseen circumstances. No claims for indemnification from the organisers shall arise for contractors or participants in case of cancellation, for any reason, of the entire congress.
Delegates are advised to arrange a cancellation insurance for their congress costs (i.e. registration fee, travel or accommodation costs). A cancellation insurance offered by the “Europäische Reiseversicherung“ can be booked during the online registration process. The insurance sum also covers costs incurred for services which have not been booked via Mondial Congress & Events.

Passport and Visa
Please check passport and visa requirements in due time before your departure. Three month tourist visas are issued by Spanish embassies or consulates. They can take a while to be processed, so leave enough time before departure to apply. Fees vary depending on your nationality. There are no entry requirements or restrictions on EU nationals visiting Spain.
Visa information can be obtained from the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs website: www.exteriores.gob.es/Portal/en/Paginas/inicio.aspx

Travel Visa - Letter of Invitation
On request, the official congress organiser will be pleased to send letters of invitation to individual participants. Invitations of this kind are intended to assist registered delegates to raise their travel funds or obtain visas. They do not imply any commitment or responsibility on behalf of the congress to provide financial support. Please note that letters of invitation can only be sent after receipt of registration and payment of full registration fee.
Please note that visa applications can take a while to be processed, so please send us your request for a letter of invitation in due time. Invitation letters can be claimed during the online registration process.
