Payment

The participation fees are owed upon registration.

Presenters must pay by 10th April to ensure their presentation is on the schedule.

If you have to cancel your registration, please let the Registration Chair know as soon as you possibly can. The PanSIG committee cannot guarantee that fees will be refunded. If refunded, a handling fee of 500 yen will be deducted.

No refunds will be accepted for any cancelations after 10th May.

The conference program may be subject to change.

You are recommended to use the JALT PayPal account to make payments.

Note to PayPal users: You must have an account with PayPal before making a payment with this system. Use the "Pay with my PayPal account" option when making payment. After you log in to PayPal, you can choose to pay by a credit card registered with PayPal. Do not use the "Pay with a credit card" option below the Log In button on the PayPal page (marked on top with "Choose a way to pay"), as that does not work properly in Japan.

Note to Bank Transfer users: It takes approximately one week for us to receive and process bank transfer payments. If you need to print a receipt, please be patient. Thank you for your understanding.

We can issue a receipt at the conference if necessary.

Letters of Acceptance

PanSIG issues letters of acceptance that are recognised at most universities.

For the purposes of attending PanSIG please be advised that Japan has visa exemption arrangements with 67 countries. If you come from a country other than those on this list, please be advised that PanSIG can offer no support beyond indicating that your presentation has been accepted for presentation. We can't help you with visa documents or sponsor you.

We do not sponsor presenters' visas. If you require a special format for your acceptance letter for funding reasons, be sure to contact the organisers well in advance.
