Can I get one invoice for both membership and Annual Meeting registration fee?

Although you can pay both fees at once, we always issue separate invoices for membership and AM registration fee. The reason is that the invoice for the conference registration is issued on behalf of the local organiser.

How can I change billing details in my invoice?

No, it is not possible to transfer EAA membership. If you know that you are not able to attend the meeting, please notify as soon as possible. The replacement is not possible but we may help you with the process of registering your colleague. The AM registration fee is refundable before 22 April, with handling fee before 6 July 2021.

What is the format of Kiel Annual Meeting?

The Kiel AM is conceived as a hybrid event, allowing both in-person and remote participation; the complete academic programme will be available online.

Are the fees same for onsite and remote participants?

Yes, all participants need to be current (2021) EAA members and have to pay AM registration fees, which are same for both types of participants.

Why is session submission (end September - early November) / call for papers (mid December - mid February) so early? 

EAA Annual Meetings usually have between 150 - 250 paralel sessions, and 2000 - 3500 contributions. Both sessions and contributions are evaluated by the Scientific Committee, contributions are also evaluated by session organisers.
The creation of the scientific programme is very complex and before building it we also need main authors to have their fees settled (deadline 22 April) which require some time to collect. Just after we know who is really participating at the Meeting we can announce the preliminary / final version of AM schedule.

My session accepted for Budapest 2020 Annual Meeting was cancelled / postponed, do I need to submit it again for 2021?

Yes, there is a new session submission for 2021 Annual Meeting, also because the Scientific Committee is a different one. Please do submit your session before the deadline. We cannot automatically submit the session proposal for you.

What will happen if the onsite part of the AM has to be cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions?

The Annual Meeting will run as fully virtual AM, similar to VAM 2020. The software solution is under revision, also keeping into account results of 2020 survey. 
In such case, the registration fees may be reviewed.
