MCI Deutschland GmbH is acting as an agent for hotel accommodation and social program/ evening events. The scientific program is the organizer’s responsibility. Registration fees are collected by MCI Deutschland GmbH on behalf of the organizer.

These general terms and conditions and all subsequent information are to be considered as the legal basis for all reservations.
