How to register

Join SURGICON 2022

The only way to register to SURGICON 2022 is through this website, by creating a personal account!

After you click “Create an account” three easy steps will follow.

How do I know which participation pack is right for me?

When deciding upon a participation pack, the first thing you must consider is whether you will be able to attend the congress in a physical form and participate at workshops held in Bucharest. If the answer is yes, then you should choose one of the Physical packs. If you are unsure of your travelling possibilities, we recommend that you opt for an Online pack.

The second thing that is important to decide upon is if you want to be actively involved in the Scientific Competition. We highly encourage you to do so, as presenting at a congress is a crucial experience for a medical student. If you want this experience, you should register as an ACTIVE participant.

Switching your pack

Online pack to physical pack

If you wish to switch your participation to a physical one, you will have to access the extras section of your account, select switching your pack, upgrade and choose online to physical. Select the physical pack that you wish to switch to and pay the price difference between your online pack fee and the current fee (i.e early/regular/late fee) of your physical pack of choice.

Physical pack to online pack

If you are no longer able to come in person at the congress, you can choose to attend online by downgrading your physical pack to the corresponding online pack. (i.e A to a, B to b; Premium to b). You will receive the price difference between the two packs minus a handling fee of 15 €. (20€ in the regular fee period, 25€ in the late fee period respectively). In order to downgrade you will have to access the extras section of your account, select switching your pack and choose downgrade from physical to online.

After the registration period is closed, you will not be able to switch your pack to online*, nor be elligible for a refund.

* The only exception to this rule is applied to physical participants who are impacted by COVID-19 restrictions or are themselves positive for the infection or in quarantine. If they provide proof for their unique situation (such as a positive PCR test) by sending it to registrations@surgicon.ro, then their Account will be converted to an Online account. No refund will be given.

To a different online pack/physical pack

Conversion between packs, whether they are physical or online, is possible only if the participant wishes to switch to a higher value pack. For example someone with pack A may switch to B or Premium, someone with pack B may switch ONLY to Premium and someone with a Premium pack will be unable to switch. The same logic applies to Online packs.

In order to upgrade your pack, go to the extras section of your account, select switching your pack, upgrade and choose online to physical. Select the pack that you wish to switch to and pay the price difference between your online pack fee and the current fee (i.e early/regular/late fee) of your physical pack of choice.

Active to passive

Before the abstract submission deadline

If you wish to switch your account to a Passive one, you can do so by accessing the Extras section of your account, selecting Switching your pack and choosing Active to Passive. After this step, you will have to pay an additional fee amounting to the price difference between the Active and Passive pack of your selected choice.

  • Keep in mind that prices vary during the registration period, therefore, if you have paid the fee for an Active pack in the early registration period but you have decided upon switching in the regular registration period, the price difference will be higher.

After the abstract submission deadline

If you do not submit an abstract, your account will be converted to a Passive participant account. You have until the 8th of October (deadline of the late registration period) to pay the difference for the late fee Passive participation pack.

By not paying the price difference before the mentioned deadline you acknowledge the fact that your account will automatically become inactive and your fee is non-refundable.

If the abstract you submit is NOT accepted in the Scientific Competition, you can either attend the Congress as a Passive Participant or ask for a refund.

  • become a Passive Participant - you will have to pay the price difference between the Active fee and the Passive participation pack fee, until the 8th of October 2022 (deadline of the late registration period);
    • this price difference will correspond to the period you have created your Active account, and it will amount to 5€ for online packs and 10€ for physical packs.
  • ask for a full refund - contact us at this email address: treasurer@surgicon.ro.

If you neither pay for Passive participation, nor ask for a refund until the 8th October 2022 (deadline of the late registration period), your account becomes inactive and your fee is non-refundable.

Passive to active

You can update your account from Passive to Active by accessing the Extras section of your account, selecting Switching your pack and choosing Passive to Active, as long as you take the responsibility of submitting an abstract before the Submission Deadline (17th of September 2022). After the list of accepted abstracts is announced, if your abstract was not accepted, your account will remain Passive as it was initially. If your abstract is accepted, then you can receive the money difference between Active and Passive of your selected pack as a refund.
