4. Reservation Procedure
Step 1. Website Log in and go to ‘My Page’
After logging in to the website, you can reserve a hotel room on My Page. (Click here to go to My Page.)
Step 2. Hotel Reservation and Payment Information
Please choose a hotel and enter your reservation information. After checking the total charges, enter your payment details. Once your application is complete, reservation details will be sent you by email.
Step 3. Deposit Payment and Confirmation
When you submit your reservation and payment details, this information is sent to the housing bureau and the reservation deposit (the room rate for one night stay) payment will be charged to your credit or debit card within a maximum of seven days of your reservation. If you pay via wire transfer, please check the Invoice sent by email and send the deposit to the housing bureau account. After this deposit payment, the reservation confirmation will be emailed to you. When you receive this confirmation, your reservation will be complete.
Step 4. Balance Payment
After the reservation deadline of 20 April 2021, the balance of the room charges (the total charges minus the deposit paid) will be deducted from the same credit/debit card used to pay the deposit. If you pay the room charges via bank transfer, you are required to send the remaining balance by 21 April 2021.
5. Cancellation and Refund
For reservation changes and cancellations, please email the housing bureau at
Two different policies apply to cancellation: one is a general cancellation and refund policy and the other a special cancellation and refund policy for Covid-19-related cases.
General Cancellation and Refund Policy
Changes or cancellations requested before 20 April 2021 will not incur additional costs. Please consult the table below for cancellation and refund information.
|Time of cancellation||Refund|
|Before 23:59 on 20 April 2021||Full refund|
|From 21 April 2021, early checkout on the check-in date, or no-show*||No refund
(100% of the payment made for the entire reservation will be forfeited as a penalty)
* No-show: no appearance without cancelling the reservation
All cancellation requests and refunds will be processed based on Korean standard time and actual refunds will be made after the Congress is over. For payments made by wire transfer, bank fees will be deducted from the refunded amount. If you paid with a credit card, the paid amount would be cancelled without any additional fees.
Refunds Due to COVID-19
If you are unable to attend the congress and check in to your reserved hotel room on account of departure/entry restrictions due to COVID-19 quarantine, a positive test result for COVID-19, or any other COVID-19-related reasons, please send a cancellation request to get a full refund of the amount paid for your reservation. (If you made your payment via wire transfer, bank fees will be deducted from the refunded amount.) The 20 April deadline for reservation cancellations does not apply if cancellation is COVID-19-related. The hotel cancellation request and supporting documents should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (Download the cancellation request form). After reviewing your submitted documents, a full refund will be made.

Participants are advised to take out traveler’s insurance. The official housing bureau will not take responsibility for any losses or incidents that arise during participants’ hotel stays.
