Fees and Registration

Online Workshops

We are aiming for online workshops that offer, as far as possible, the same interactive experience you would get from a face-to-face workshop. The maximum number of attendees is 30 for foundation workshops and 20 for advanced workshops.

Conference registration allows each delegate to book up to 5 workshops, subject to availability. There is a fee for each workshop, in addition to the conference registration fee. 

If you are intending to do the workshop for credit, please note that to gain a credit you must:

    • Attend the workshop. Participants who miss more than 30 minutes of instructional time (by arriving late, leaving early or leaving the online session for a long period) will not be eligible for credit, and
    • Satisfactorily complete the pre-workshop assignment (if applicable), and
    • Satisfactorily complete the post-workshop assignment, and submit it by the deadline given.

We suggest you consider the workload associated with the workshops you are considering booking. Past conference delegates have told us that attending 4 workshops can result in a post-conference workload that is hard to fit in with work and other commitments.

Post-workshop assignments typically take up to 3 hours to complete (see the workshop abstracts for more detail) and the deadline is usually 6 weeks after the conference.  Post-workshop assignments must be your own work. We do not accept joint submissions or submissions based on joint working unless specified by the workshop leader.

Waiting lists for EPDP workshops

If your first-choice of EPDP workshop or other event is full, you can ask to be put on a waiting list. However, we advise you to also book another workshop, because we generally have a very low cancellation rate for the workshops and so places do not often become available. If a place does become available, we will offer it to delegates in the order in which they were added to the waiting list. If we are able to offer you a place in your first-choice workshop, we will let you know at least 10 days in advance of the workshop. If you have not heard by this time, no places became available.

Workshops and seminars may be added to your original registration (subject to availability) at any time, without incurring an administrative fee. All changes are subject to availability.

At the time of registration, delegates may choose between immediate payment by credit card or to be invoiced. Invoices must be settled by bank transfer in Euros. All fees are payable in advance. Full payment is due by 4 November 2020. If payment has not been received by this date, EMWA reserves the right to refuse entry.
