However, the conference organisers (Beat) and the Scientific Programme Committee reserve the right to alter or cancel, without prior notice, any arrangements, timetables, plans or other items relating directly or indirectly to the EDIC 2022 Conference, for any cause beyond its reasonable control. The EDIC 2022 organisers and the Scientific Programme Committee are not liable for any loss or inconvenience caused as a result of such alteration.

The conference programme relies on delegates having an academic understanding in the field of eating disorders and whilst elements of the conference may be of interest to those outside of the academic field, due to the programme content, design and the nature of the research and debates being presented, the conference content may not be suitable for someone currently suffering and could be significantly triggering for some.

In the event of cancellation of EDIC 2022 all pre-paid fees will be refunded in full. However, the organisers and the Scientific Programme Committee are not liable for any loss or inconvenience caused as a result of such cancellation and the liability of the organisers shall be limited to the conference fee. Delegates are advised to take out their own travel insurance and to extend their policy to cover personal possessions as the conference does not cover individuals against cancellation of bookings or theft or damage to belongings.

Cancellation Policy

A refund of fees will be given less a 20% administration charge, provided that the Conference Administrative Secretariat receives notice of cancellation in writing to edic@beateatingdisorders.org.uk on or before date tbc. After this date, no refunds will be given. Refunds will not be given for no-shows at the conference. Discounts applied to attend multiple conferences organised by Beat, in the event of cancellation will be void and adjusted taking into account the final conference fee paid.
