WASP Cancellation Policy

Cancellations by delegates

To cancel attendance at a WASP (Write a Scientific Paper) event, notice of cancellation must be given by email to mime@ithams.com.


If you cancel at least 30 days prior to the start of the course you will receive a full refund minus a 10% administration fee.

If you cancel between 30 and 14 days prior to the start of the course you will receive a 50% refund.

If you cancel less than 14 days before the event you will not be entitled to a refund.

No refund will be made for non-attendance on the course.


WASP will accept name changes for attendees. Please inform us at mime@ithams.com 14 days prior to the event.


Changes to course content

WASP courses are constantly updated and while we endeavour to deliver the courses as advertised there may inevitably be occasions where we have to change content without prior notice. This may involve changes to the order of the talks, to the speakers, and occasionally, even to titles of individual talks.


Cancellations by WASP

In exceptional circumstances, WASP may cancel an event. In the case of a course cancellation delegates will be offered a full refund. We will also consider any reasonable request to cover non-refundable travel arrangements if a course is cancelled within 14 days of the start day. WASP will not compensate for time spent travelling or away from the place of work. Occasionally circumstances will arise which result in the need to cancel, reschedule or postpone an event, due to an unforeseen occurrence or Force Majeure. When this is the case WASP shall assume no liability or responsibility for any loss, damage, injury, claims costs or expenses of any kind whatsoever.


Force Majeure is defined as any unforeseen occurrence that renders performance of the event impossible, inadvisable, illegal or impracticable. Force Majeure includes, but is not limited to: casualty, fire, explosion, flood, earthquake or other natural disasters, an act of God, governmental restrictions or regulations, war or apparent acts of war, terrorism or apparent acts of terrorism, civil disturbances or riots, strikes, curtailment, suspension or restriction on transportation facilities and means of transportation or any other emergency.
