ISoNTech is a free to attend, distinct 1-day event taking place in June each year. It requires registration using an on-line registration form provided on the event website. Participants fully registered for, and attending the GFN (https://gfn.net.co) may collect and use their GFN badge during the ISoNTech Symposium, and thus are not required to separately register for ISoNTech.
Registration for the event can be completed in person at the event itself. However if the maximum delegate capacity is reached, the organisers reserve the right to refuse additional registrations.
The registration includes:
- attendance at all sessions during the ISoNTech event
- a delegate pack containing the relevant documents and materials upon arrival at the event
- access to the ISoNTech and networking area
- light lunch and afternoon refreshments during the event
The registration does not include:
- attendance at the GFN conference social event
- attendance at GFN conference sessions
Notification of cancellation must be made in writing and sent to the ISoNTech Organising Team by email ().
In the event that the Symposium cannot be held, or is postponed due to events beyond the control of the Symposium organisers (force majeure) or due to events which are not attributable to wrongful intent or gross negligence of the conference organisers, the Symposium organisers cannot be held liable by delegates for any damages, costs, or losses incurred, such as transportation costs, accommodation costs, financial losses, etc.
The ISoNTech organisers reserve the right to modify the programme, which is published as an indication only.
The Symposium organisers welcome commercial and non-commercial media coverage of the event including film, photographic, and audio recording. However, filming and audio recording (excluding photography using small equipment such as mobile phones) in the session rooms is only by express permission of the organisers and should be done in an unobtrusive manner that does not impede the proceedings for participants.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, copyright in all images and recordings in the session rooms becomes joint copyright of the person, or organisation making the recording and the Symposium organisers. No film, images, or audio-recordings taken anywhere in the conference venue may be used in any commercial advertisement without the agreement of the organisers and those who appear in such media.
The organisers are aware of the need for good research. However, no participant may use attendance at the Symposium as an opportunity to collect data directly or indirectly, overtly or covertly on participants, or the event without the express permission of the organisers and the informed consent of subjects.
Knowledge•Action•Change will collect and store all personal data for the preparation and execution of the event. Data protection is warranted in accordance with relevant data protection legislation in the UK.
In order to facilitate border entry and visa applications, the organisers will share contact details of delegates with Polish authorities as required by law.
In addition, the organisers periodically share contact details of participants with third parties that may use these details to contact participants regarding activities at the Symposium or other communications that may be of interest. Therefore data might be passed on to third parties unless otherwise explicitly indicated by the delegate on the registration form.
The organisers shall be held liable in the framework of a duty of care according to statutory provisions. The liability of the organisers - for whatever legal reason - shall be limited to intent and gross negligence. The liability of commissioned service providers shall remain unaffected by this. The participant shall take part in the Symposium at his/her own risk. Oral agreements shall not be binding if these have not been confirmed in writing by Knowledge•Action•Change.
