There is a variable value added tax (VAT) of 10% to 21% applied to most items and services but in most prices you see will include it. When it is not included, this should be clearly indicated. Neither the Organisation nor Mondial & Cititravel Congresos accepts responsibility for any changes, which may occur due to an official increase of VAT.
There will be volunteers available to assist delegates. The volunteers will wear polo-shirts or T-shirts with ALBA Synchrotron and ICALEPCS2017 logos.
