Payment is made by bank transfer. As soon as you have registered, you will receive a registration confirmation by e-mail. After your registration has been processed, you will be sent an invoice in PDF format with all the payment details

If you pay by bank transfer after February 20, 2023, we ask you to present a bank transfer slip from your bank on site.

If you decide to attend our conference at very short notice, you will have the option to pay the conference fee in cash on site. We also offer on-site payment in cash to persons from non-European countries, for whom a bank transfer would result in considerable additional costs.


If it is not possible for you as parents to organize suitable care for your children, we would like to offer you to make use of the professional care provided by the University of Cologne. For our planning purposes, we ask that you register for childcare by Jan. 31, 2023. Please also inform us by e-mail to
