    • Removal of content presented by the specific participant.
    • Denying access to the workshop.
  • The organiser assumes no responsibility for the content, data and/or information provided by participants, or for content on linked external websites. In particular, the organiser does not guarantee that this content is true, fulfils a specific purpose or can serve such a purpose. The participant is solely responsible for the content he/she presents.
  • Each presenter must also independently ensure that he/she does not infringe any third-party rights in the course of his/her presentation and that he/she complies with all contractual and legal obligations (including these conditions of participation). In particular, he/she is obliged to check the information provided by him/her (logos, text and image material, videos, etc.) for their legality, as well as for any existing third-party rights. Special reference is made here to the provisions of the Copyright Act, the Trademark Act and the Unfair Competition Act.
  • The organiser will expressly not check the data provided in abstracts and presentations for their legality. Participants shall indemnify the organiser against all claims by third parties that may be asserted against the organiser on the basis of their conduct in violation of the law or the contract. This shall also include the reasonable costs of legal defence, in particular court costs and lawyers' fees in the statutory amount. Sentence two shall not apply, if the participant is not responsible for the infringement. In any case, however, the participant shall be obliged to inform the organiser immediately, completely and truthfully in the workshop of a possible claim by third parties and to provide all information necessary for verification and defence.
  • Hosting takes place on servers of a third-party provider (artfiles). The BESL event agency is contracted by the organiser as a technical partner.

Likewise, DLR and BESL Eventagentur are not liable for failures caused by force majeure.

  • Participants of the international conference come from different countries, also countries that are subject to very extensive United Nations´ embargo regulations which concern even dual use goods. Therefore, we urgently suggest that participants who present new and unpublished scientific results assure that these results are not subject to any applicable embargo regulation. In case they are, all necessary export licenses have to be obtained before presentation. DLR cannot assume any responsibility or liability for compliance with export control laws and regulations by conference participants from other institutions and organizations who present their results. They are liable for a presentation in compliance with applicable export control laws themselves.
  • These terms and conditions and all obligations arising therefrom shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. The place of jurisdiction for all disputes between exhibitors and DLR shall be Cologne. Should any provisions of these Conditions of Participation be or become invalid in whole or in part, this shall not affect the remaining provisions.
