Cancellations & Refunds

ISAKOS understands the ongoing pandemic creates uncertainty surrounding the possibility of attending an in-person 2021 ISAKOS Congress. While new developments in this dynamic pandemic have the potential to render attending an in-person meeting difficult, ISAKOS is committed to delivering its 2021 Congress in November 2021. We strongly aim to hold an in-person meeting, but please know the Congress will offer virtual participation on these same dates, if necessary.

We understand you may need to cancel your registration for ISAKOS 2021. If this is the case, simply reach out to the ISAKOS office with your written request for cancellation by September 27, 2021 for a full refund. For 2021, ISAKOS is pleased to announce the removal of the $100 cancellation processing fee.

In the case that an in-person meeting in Cape Town is not possible, the ISAKOS Congress will transition to a virtual meeting in 2021, and your registration will be honored for the virtual meeting. In such a case, each registrant will automatically be refunded 55% of their original registration fee or may choose to apply the refund towards registration for a future ISAKOS Congress.
