Adopt A Delegate Program

ISDE is proud to introduce the 'Adopt A Delegate' initiative, giving prospective delegates from a developed world setting the opportunity to adopt or part finance the registration and accommodation costs of a peer from an emerging economy. Delegates can support other delegates by donating any amount they feel appropriate during their own online registration process. Sponsored delegates will carry financial responsibility for travel expenses related to the Congress, while the donated money will be used to help offset costs for registration and/or accommodation.

ISDE recognizes that most people from emerging countries do not have the financial resources to attend meetings outside their country. With this initiative, ISDE hopes to provide additional opportunities for those researchers and physicians to attend the ISDE World Congress, exchange information and set up a network with researchers and physicians from all over the world attempting to help the sponsored delegate's research both now and in the future.

ISDE hopes that many delegates will participate as 'sponsors' and would like to thank everyone for their consideration and support. Our goal is to raise $10,000 through the Adopt A Delegate Initiative. All 'sponsors' will be acknowledged on the Congress website and in the Onsite Program. In addition to that, we would be happy to arrange for face-to-face meetings between sponsors and sponsored delegates.

Those individuals who would like to apply to receive funding support from the Adopt A Delegate Program are required to submit a cover letter to the ISDE explaining the need for funding assistance. Applicants must acknowledge that they will carry the financial responsibility for travel expenses related to the Congress. If successful, the donated money will be used to help offset costs for registration and/or accommodation only. If applicants are accepted for abstract presentation, they must still complete their registration and payment first before the presenter registration deadline: July 1, 2014.  Applicant letters can be submitted by email to isde2014@isde.net.


Letter of Invitation for Visa

An official Letter of Invitation to obtain a Visa and authorization to attend the 14th World Congress of the ISDE in Vancouver, Canada will be issued ONLY after a completed registration form and full payment have been received along with proof of accommodation booked during the Congress dates.

Please contact our registration department at isde2014-registration@icsevents.com once you are registered and registration fees have been paid if you require a Letter of Invitation. Letters of Invitation will not be issued to parties who are not registered and/or paid in full.

In addition to the Letter of Invitation, we will also provide you with a copy of the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) Recognition Letter. It is recommended that all foreign attendees provide a copy of the letter for presentation to a CBSA Border Services Officer upon arrival to Canada.


Refund and Cancellation Policy

Registration cancellations received in writing at the ISDE 2014 Secretariat's address by August 8, 2014 will be accepted and all fees refunded, less a $50 CAD administrative fee. Cancellations received after August 8, 2014 will not be refunded; however, transfer of your registration to another person is acceptable. This change can be made by re-accessing your online registration using the link in your confirmation letter.

In the unlikely event that the 14th World Congress of the ISDE is cancelled, travel and accommodation costs will not be refunded.



Accommodation

The official hotel and Congress venue of the 14th World Congress of the ISDE is the Westin Bayshore Hotel nestled on the waterfront in downtown Vancouver that offers guests the best of both worlds: the activities and cultural events of the city, as well as a relaxing Vancouver resort experience.

The Congress Secretariat (International Conference Services) is the official housing bureau for the 14th World Congress of the ISDE and will offer assistance with the coordination of housing requirements for the Congress. Special room rates have been negotiated and will be available to Congress delegates only.
You will be able to reserve a guest room at the Westin Bayshore at the same time as you complete your online congress registration.
