Croatia operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz. The pugs have two round pins. Mainland Europe’s plugs are mostly the same except for the UK’s which are 3 pronged and flat.

You may be the main presenter of one individual paper or as part of one self-organised symposia BUT you can be a co-presenter on multiple papers (including other individual papers and papers submitted as part of self-organised symposia, posters and PED-talks). However, bear in mind the more papers you are listed to present / co-present on, the fewer you can attend as a non-presenting delegate and the more difficult it is for us to design the programme to avoid clashes.

Unfortunately not – all presenters must attend the conference and present in person.

Everyone entering Croatia must have a valid travel document. In the case of European Union Member States, a national identity card or a passport is required. Visas are required for some countries. Delegates must check their requirement by visiting the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs website.

If you have set up an account on the EECERA Conference website, you should have received an automated account set up confirmation email. If you have not received one, it may be a good first indication of the email deliverability issue.

We continue to work with our web developers to ensure high email deliverability. However, generally speaking, spam filtering has become more rigorous and there are instances when academic institutions’ firewalls are redirecting our emails to spam folders or blocking them altogether. When / if we receive a notification of an email deliverability error / bounce back, we will use your alternative email address (if provided on your account) to contact you.

If you think you may not be receiving important conference emails, we advise you to take the following steps:

  • Check your inbox as well as spam folders for emails from us.
  • If an email from us ( EECERA 2020 / enquiries@eeceraconference.org) is caught in the spam folder, please save our email in your contact book, mark the email(s) as ‘safe’ and move to inbox.

If the issue persists or you do not get emails from us at all, we recommend:

  • Logging in to your EECERA Conference account to double-check your contact email address is correct and has not been misspelled.
  • Changing current primary email to an alternative contact email address.
