Second Announcement

2nd Announcement - June 2013

25 - 30 November 2013, Florianópolis, SC, Brazil 

(1) Deadlines for abstract and travel grant applications postponed to July 15th 

Due to numerous requests, we are extending by two weeks the deadlines for abstract submission and applications for IAU financial support for young astronomers. The new (and definitive) deadline is Monday, July the 15th.

The confirmation of the  abstracts (short talks and posters) approved by the Scientific Committee will be available before August, 21st.

(2) Registration Fee

Until August 31st, the registration fee is R$600 for doctors and R$300 for students. After this date the fees will be R$700 for doctors and R$350 for students.

Payment of registration fee

The web-site has been updated in order to give instructions for participants that do not have an account in a Brazilian bank, for whom the preferred payment method is via PayPal. International bank transfer is not recommended due to the expensive charges. Participants are responsible for paying any charges levied by their bank for this transfer.

In the LARIM2013 “Registration Fee” webpage there is a button (“Pay now”) that redirects you to the PayPal web-sit, where you can use your credit card number or your PayPal account to proceed with the payment of the registration fee. The Identification field can be used to inform the name of the participant that is being registered.

Confirmation of the Payment

When your payment is concluded you shall receive an email from PayPal confirming it. Please keep this confirmation with you. If in a few days your name does not appear in the list of registered participants, do not hesitate to inform us.

Cancellation Fee

If you cancel your registration until October 15st, 2013 we will refund the Registration fee but charge R$45,00 (transfer fee). Refunding will be made via PayPal.

If you cancel your participation after October 15st, 2013 or in case of no-show, reimbursement cannot be made.

(4) Travel information


The hotel booking must be done by the participant. Among the list of hotels given in the LARIM2013 webpage, three are offering discount for participants (Oceania Park, Porto Sol Quality and Praiatur). We recommend participants to consider staying in one of these. Due to the limited number of rooms, we encourage you to book the hotel early, mentioning in the reservation that you will be attending the LARIM2013 and request special rates.

Transportation (between Florianópolis International Airport and Convention Center/Hotels)

Shuttles from/to the airport will be made available by the LARIM2013 organizers. The schedules will be defined on demand according to the arrivals/departures of flights.
