Dear colleagues, the registration has been closed!

Dear colleagues, If your proposal has been selected for the EACS-2016, you are welcome to register for the conference. The list of approved participants is available here. The registration can be done in 3 steps.

STEP 1. Application for Membership / Payment of the Membership Fee (Optional)

All participants are encouraged to join the EACS and to pay the membership fee for 2016 before proceeding to the next stages of registration. It’ll take around one week to get an email approval of the membership application. After that you may pay the membership fee without waiting for the annual invoice.

STEP 2. Confirmation of Participation

I hereby confirm that I agree to participate in the 21st conference of the European Association for Chinese Studies and allow the organizers to process my personal data and to include my name, affiliation and abstract (if applicable) into the printed and online conference materials.

Family Name:

Given Name:


*Please, enter email address, used at submission of the proposal.

STEP 3. Payment of the Conference Fee

1. The period for online payment is April 1 – June 1, 2016.

2. All payments are to be collected in Russian rubles. The exchange rate, set by St. Petersburg University for the conference, is 1 Euro = 80 Rubles. The fees (online and cash) will be collected at this rate regardless of daily fluctuations on the currency market, which means that the sum in euros could be slightly lower or higher than expected. Please, also note that the bank will automatically add a 2,9 % surcharge to each transaction.

Since for online payment you should fill in the amount in rubles, please, refer to the following table:

Status Conference fee only Banquet fee only Conference fee + Banquet fee**
Members* 4800 rubles 3200 rubles 8000 rubles
Student members* 2400 rubles 3200 rubles 5600 rubles
Non members 9600 rubles 3200 rubles 12800 rubles
*Only members, who paid the EACS membership fee for 2016, are eligible for paying the conference fee at member’s rate. You may check your membership status at the EACS database at
**Those, who plan to attend the banquet, are recommended to pay the banquet fee together with conference fee. Since the banquet will be preordered, the organizers can not guarantee an opportunity to attend the banquet, if paying at the desk during the conference.

3. The online payment system accepts Mastercard and Visa cards. It makes no difference, what is the original currency of the card. The currency exchange is done automatically by the involved banks.

4. How to pay online:

  • Go to the payment gate:
  • Fill in your family name, given name, address, amount of payment in rubles and copy paste the event code (the event code for EACS-2016 is   2.16.823.2016). After clicking SUBMIT, you’ll be transferred to the secure payment page. After the payment is effected, you'll have an option to print out a receipt. If you fail to get an electronic receipt, or you doubt whether the payment is successful or not, please, contact the organizers before trying to pay again.

5. Please, note that the conference fee is non refundable.

6. If your fee is paid by someone else, please, send us an email to, indicating the payer’s name, amount and date of payment.
