- The encrypted connection for the registration form itself is signed by the University of Helsinki, which is not an official certifying authority. This may cause the browser to complain when entering the site, which is no cause for alarm. The credit card details are processed separately by Luottokunta card payment service, with an officially signed certificate.
- Credit card problems? If the payment does not go through, note the
following. The error message 2000/2100: The card issuer declined the
authorisation indicates that the card-issuing company or bank for some reason does not
let you pay to Luottokunta card payment service. The reason could be e.g. that
- the company/bank finds the purchase suspect or detects unsusual behaviour from your side, or that
- there is some restriction on the card that says that you are not allowed to use it on the web (or on this particular web page even if it works on other web pages), or that
- the card is not covered.
Please call your card company/bank, to find out the reason. They will be able to help you solve the problem.
Note also that the name on the registration page does not have to be the same as the name on the card.
- Browser problems. Payment does not seem to work with Safari browser.
- There is no reduced fee for attending several events. However, UAI delegates can attend COLT sessions and vice versa.
- There is a separate fee for attending the joint workshops on 9 July 2008, but the ICML tutorials on 5 July are included in the ICML conference fee.
- The UAI or COLT fee includes one set of paper proceedings. If you register for COLT, you will get the COLT proceedings and vice versa for UAI. No paper proceedings is included with the ICML registration fee. Additional proceedings may be pre-ordered (see registration form).
- Pascal2 members may register for free for MLG (early bird). The banquet is included for a limited number of Pascal members, so if a member wants to ensure a banquet ticket, he/she has to register with a regular fee. Students have two options for registering, to include (more expensive) or exclude (cheaper) the banquet
- Lunches are not included in the fees. Banquets are included in the fees of the appropriate events unless otherwise noted. The reception on 9 July is open to all participants of any of the five events (MLG, ICML, Joint workshop day, UAI, COLT).
