Nearly four years ago, we, the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), began working on the Cospar 2016 Assembly. From the very first instant, our highest priority has been the attendees of the Assembly. We worked tirelessly to provide the best for you while building toward the Conference. With the same tenacity, we've been working for you after the cancellation.
We have been negotiating with COSPAR for a resolution. Just recently, we reached an understanding. Customarily, COSPAR was expected to receive a small portion of registration revenue, with the LOC retaining the remainder. However, we have no intention of keeping any funds for the LOC.
We wish to provide a FULL REFUND OF REGISTRATION FEES to ANYONE THAT REQUESTS IT.
This includes everyone, regardless of WHEN they cancelled their registration.
In addition, the Local Organizing Committee will gift ALL 100% of remaining registration funds to COSPAR.
You have two options:
For either option please follow the directions you receive by email.
We kindly ask that everyone please follow the directions - even those that do not want a refund.
The deadline for this is before OCTOBER 1st, 2016.
We are also working with vendors so they might alleviate any financial burden experienced by registrants due to the cancellation. Please note, this email is for the refund of REGISTRATION FEES, ONLY.
For assistance with other Assembly related refunds please contact DEKON by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We were excitedly looking forward to COSPAR 2016. We were hoping our attendees would assemble, cooperate, collaborate, learn, teach, and enjoy their visit to Istanbul. Unfortunately, that didn't happen this time. So we hope this gesture can serve as a taste of Turkish Hospitality. We look forward to seeing you at future events around the world and in Turkey.

Chair of the Local Organizing Committee,
