WCH Early Bird Registration Deadline extended to 30 April, 2016:

As there were delegates having problems with using credit cards to pay for orders before 31 March 2016, the WCH8 Organizer has decided to extend Early Registration to the 30 April 2106. Those who have paid an order at the regular registration price since 1 April 2016 can ask for a reimbursement of 50 USD (general), 40 USD (student) USD and 25 USD (accompanying person) at the conference site.

Hotels and Visas:

As the G20 Summit in 2016 will be held in Hangzhou in early September (about two weeks after the WCH8) with several satellite meetings affiliated to the G20 Summit taking place earlier, hotel prices and security measures in August will be higher than ever before. The WCH8 Organizer kindly reminds you to book hotels as soon as you can and to not apply for a visa to enter China at the last minute.
