Booking additional scientific events is only permitted by buying more tokens from our website. On-site places will be limited in accordance with the room capacity, health regulations and OC decisions. Each participant can buy extra tokens only in the specific packages mentioned below:

Prices for the scientific events are as follows:

100

Because no IMSSB is complete without its Oral Presentation, there will be 100 memberships (of the said 400) reserved for On-Site/Premium Presenters ONLY, between September 16th and October 25th (abstract submission deadline), in order to ensure their spot at the Summit.

The memberships for On-site/Premium Presenters whose abstract is not accepted by the Scientific Committee assigned for each of the Category will automatically be turned into On-site/Premium Participant memberships. No refunds will be made in case you decide not to participate in the IMSSB because your abstract was not accepted.

The payment period will end when the maximum number of 400 participants is reached or on November 15th, whichever comes first. After this, the only membership left available will be the Online Passive Viewer. There will be no payment deadline or memberships limit for the Online Passive Viewer.

The 1st place winner of each category: Original Study, Review and Case Report will receive the chance to share their experience in the research field in a 30-minute showcase in a special panel held on Saturday.

They will do so in physical format, in one of the auditoriums specially designed for live conferences.

All packages will provide access to our online Scientific, Social and Cultural programme, access to the art exhibition as well as the right to participate in this competition. By the end of the event, the participant will receive an e-certificate of participation.

Only On-site Participants and Presenters will have the chance to come to our live Scientific, Social and Cultural events, interact with the speakers and other participants, have access to the Opening Ceremony and receive our IMSSB welcoming kit.

After the 25th of October, the reserved memberships that were not purchased will be redeployed for purchase to On-Site/Premium Participants. The memberships for On-site/Premium Presenters whose abstract is not accepted by the Scientific Committee assigned for each of the Category will automatically be turned into On-site/Premium Participant memberships.

All the online payments made with a debit/credit card are processed outside our website, through a third party payment service, therefore no account data will be processed by the IMSSB. For more information, check section 6. Fees & Payment in the Terms and Conditions.
