Types of Participation

During these challenging times SURGICON has adapted and grown in order to offer an authentic experience without failing to follow safety measures. More options of participation packs are available to suit your individual preferences.

ACTIVE

ACTIVE

If you wish to engage in the Scientific Competition you must register as anactive participant. Active participants can attend either online or on-site. Online active participants can only register for the Online Scientific Debate Session.

Being an active participant means being a Presenting Author of a scientific paper (Oral or Poster presentation) or a participant in the Debate Session. There will be two debate sessions: one dedicated to online participants and one that will take place in an on-site form, dedicated exclusively to on-site active participants.

  • Presenting Authors are required to submit an abstract through their account and, during the congress, they should attend the program of the Scientific Competition. Co-authors of a scientific paper may register as active participants only if they are Presenting authors of a different scientific paper. Otherwise, they can be Passive participants or non-attending.

  • Participants in the Debate Session of the Scientific Competition should apply in teams of two. Each of the two participants of the team should create an account for themselves and register as Active participants. Both of them should be attending in the same form (physical/online).

Presenting Authors have the responsibility to send an abstract before the deadline. For more information about the Scientific competition and abstract submission guidelines, check the Student Scientific Session section . *link catre sectiunea scientific competition*

An Active participant has access to all of the conferences and activities included in the corresponding Passive participant pack. The accepted abstracts will be published in the Abstract Book of the congress.

This type of participation is suited for medical or biomedical students. Graduates cannot be active participants.

FAQ

Can I switch to a Passive account?

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 2nd of October 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.

What happens if my abstract is not accepted?

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 2nd of October 2022.
