COVID-19 Cancellation Policies

If you are unable to attend a conference due to a government restriction that prevents you from attending, you are eligible for a full refund. For example, if you live in Canada and, at the time of the conference, non-essential travel to the United States is banned, you would be eligibile for a full refund.

If you are legally able to attend a conference and decide to cancel due to COVID-19, our normal refund policies with cancellation fees would apply.  However, you can choose to rollover your registration fee to a future Learning & the Brain conference without any penalties.

For our hybrid events, you can switch between virtual participation or in-person participation at any time.  All participants, regardless of whether they are participating virtually or in-person will have access to the recordings of the conference for up to 45 days after the conference.

If Learning & the Brain is forced to cancel a conference due to COVID-19 legal restrictions, you will also be eligible for a full refund.
