The demonstrator exhibition organizers are doing their best to provide free access for on-site demonstrators. It may happen nevertheless that some demonstrator imposes severe expenses. In such a case costs will be shared between the organizers and the demonstrator contributor. A cost estimate will be sent to the demonstrator contributor. If he/she agrees in paying this additional cost then the contribution will be presented at the demonstrator exhibition sessions. If not, the paper will be presented in interactive format using videos. Acceptance of the contributions to the Congress Program is independent of the costs payment.
