Dear CC 2017 delegate
As you would have seen, we have a new website in place, but with that comes a few teething problems, so please be patient with us, as we are working on sorting things out.
There are four new features on the web that you are not accustomed to:
- By creating a login name and password, you have not registered for the congress. You need to login on the website and complete the registration form to attend CC 2017. After you have submitted it, you will receive an invoice via email. Early registration will be kept open till midnight of 4 November 2016. People registering after that date will pay more to attend the congress.
- You create your own invoice, so please make sure your physical address and all other information is correct. To reduce administration, we will no longer be issuing tailor made invoices – thus only one person per invoice. If you have made a mistake on your invoice, deregister and simply complete the form again with the correct information.
- Your invoice is payable within 30 days after being issued. If you do not pay on or before 30 days, your will be deregistered. To be registered again, you need to complete the registration form again and will be issued with a new invoice. If you register after 4 November the amount due on the invoice will be R500 more as you now fall into the late registration category.
- If you no longer wish to attend CC 2017 and is still registered, please go and deregister. If you have already paid and then deregister, please see our cancellation policy in terms of refunds.
Apart from 10 abstracts, the remaining 303 abstracts have been evaluated and authors should have received an email to inform them if their abstract has been accepted or rejected. All authors will know the status of their abstracts by Wednesday, 2 November. If you have not received an email in this regard by Thursday, 3 November, please contact me urgently – firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best for the rest of the year and see you at Klein Kariba in 2017

Chair – Local Organizing Committee for CC2017
