Important information for participants registered as part of a group

Please note that if a participant is registered via the group registration procedure, the group leader must provide the personal details of each group member. The group leader may still instruct the ESMO Congress Secretariat to send the confirmations for each group member directly to the group leader and not to the individual participants. The group leader may then collect the participants’ registration material on-site. Should the individual wish to collect his/her own material, he/she is kindly requested to contact their group leader. In all cases registration material will only be given in exchange for the original confirmation of registration.

Transportation Pass

All registered delegates will receive a 5-day transportation pass, valid from Friday 19 to Tuesday 23 October inclusive.

  • Tram and Bus

Throughout the city of Munich (“Innenraum”), but NOT the airport.

Congress webcasts

The Congress webcast will capture and include all the sessions of the official programme, where speaker permission is granted, and will be made available on the ESMO website within 48 hours. The webcast will be available to ESMO members (through OncologyPRO) and delegates who paid the webcast fee. Delegates can purchase the webcast package on-site at the onsite registration desks, for 47.60 Euros (VAT included).

Important: Keep your badge as you will be requested to enter your badge ID code and last name to log-in!

Certificate of Attendance

Certificate of Attendance will be available online from Wednesday morning 24 October. You will have 2 weeks to access the ESMO website in the Congress section and print it from home. Before obtaining your Certificate of Attendance, you will be requested to enter your badge ID code and last name to log in as well as complete the evaluation questionnaire. It is therefore important to retain the delegate badge for this purpose.

The Certificate of Attendance will indicate the maximum number of credit points (1 credit point per 1 hour of programme attended up to a maximum of 6 credits per day) related to the Congress. However, it is the participant’s responsibility to complete the Certificate of Attendance with the number of hours of scientific programme (= number of credit points) that he/she has actually attended.


The badge is the only official evidence of registration, thus, participants not wearing their badge do not have access to the Congress. Loss of badge is loss of registration and a new badge will be issued only upon payment of the pro-rata fee.
