Cancellation or postponement of the Conference
In the event that the NIR Conference 2023 cannot be held or must be moved or changed due to the following reason(s), though not limited to:

  • An event of “Force Majeure" meaning an event beyond the reasonable control of the conference chairmen and organisers, which prevents them from complying with any of their obligations, including but not limited to:
    • Special actions taken by government of local authorities;
    • Unforeseen political and economic events, such as national emergency or any comparable events;
    • Strike, lockout, lockdown, threats to public safety (including terrorism, health hazards) or other comparable events;
    • Act of God (such as, but not limited to, fires, explosions, earthquakes, drought, tidal waves and floods);
    • War, hostilities (whether war be declared or not), invasion, act of foreign enemies, mobilisation, requisition, embargo, national mourning, rebellion, revolution, insurrection, military or usurped power, or civil war;
    • Contamination by radioactivity from any nuclear fuel, or from any nuclear waste from the combustion of nuclear fuel, radio-active toxic explosive, or other hazardous properties of any explosive nuclear assembly or nuclear component of such assembly;
    • Riot, commotion, or disorder closure of airports and train stations;
    • Acts or threats of terrorism;
    • Pandemic or epidemic situation and other major health risk (whether declared as such or not by potential or actual health risks (e.g. pandemic flu or other disease) for the participants to the event and their patients, to the extent that the risk of disease spread is considered as serious by a significant part of the scientific community or by a significant number of Health authorities worldwide or specifically at the place of the event. However, the lack of a formal warning by the health authorities or other governmental bodies shall not be interpreted as meaning the absence of health risk for the purpose of the present provision.
    • Due to official orders, recommendations or at least economically unfeasible official requirements for which none of the parties is responsible, or due to the unreasonableness of the event implementation.
    • When 40% or more of the event participants must adhere to mandatory quarantine in home country/country where the event will be held or not permitted to travel due to ban from their respective hospitals/ institutions/ countries or immigration restriction by country where the event will be held.
  • Any other reason(s) beyond the chairmen or organisers’ control that prevents or substantially hinders the plan of holding the Conference.

The chairmen and organisers cannot be held liable by participants for any damages, costs, or losses incurred, such as transportation costs, accommodation costs, financial losses, etc. Under these circumstances, the chairmen reserve the right to retain the entire registration fees and to use those for the next edition taking place to which the participant will have the possibility to participate without paying further fees or to reimburse the registration fees after the deduction of costs already
incurred for the organisation of the NIR 2023 and which could not be recovered from third parties.


The participant acknowledges that they have no right to sue the organisers for damages should the International Conference on Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIR 2023 Innsbruck) not be held or postponed for unexpected political or economic reasons, because of "Force Majeure" or any event described on the above-mentioned section “cancellation or postponement of the Conference” or should the non-appearance of speakers or other events necessitate programme changes. With his/her registration, the participant accepts this proviso.

Additionally, the chairmen and organisers are not responsible for any bodily or material damage (including theft) sustained by participants out of, during or in connection with the NIR 2023, which is not directly the fault of the chairmen or organisers. Each participant is responsible for his or her own insurance in such events.

Travel & Health insurance
The chairmen and organisers strongly advise participants to take out insurance to cover the loss incurred in case of cancellation (registration fees, travel, accommodation, and other costs), medical expenses and damage to or loss of personal effects.

By registering for the NIR 2023, you agree to comply with the local (Innsbruck, Austria) COVID-19 measures in place at the time of the event. This includes any stipulations regarding being vaccinated, mask wearing and social distancing. The chairmen and organisers will accommodate all local regulations as part of the setup of the event.

Fulfilment and jurisdiction
Any litigation stemming from the above general terms and conditions and contract will be brought before the competent courts in Innsbruck, Austria. These general terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of Austria.
