A request to complete the SurveyMonkey form will be sent to the e-mail address you gave when registering for the conference. One reminder will be sent 2 weeks after the initial request. If you do not receive the request please contact the webmaster.

Please note due to the recent GDPR legislation, you will be asked upon registering for the meeting if you wish to receive emails. If you do not select this option BASK will be unable to contact you via e-mail regarding survey and you will therefore not receive a certificate. A certificate will only be issued on completion of the survey:

No survey = No certificate

Once the survey is closed it will NOT be re-opened and no further certificates will be sent out. BASK enforces this rule rigidly!
