There are usually more requests to speak than places available. The organisers will then make their selection according to the congress timetable and attempting to provide a balanced program. No guarantees of a place can be given at this time.

Plenary sessions: 45-minute

English and German. Further languages may be offered on sufficient
demand (at least 30 participants per language).
IVU guidelines are that

Germany are offered a discount of 200 euros (approx UKP136 / US$262
) while speakers from Germany receive 100 euros (approx UKP68 / US$131

respectively. In exceptional circumstances other arrangements may
be possible at the discretion of the organisers.
