*Policy *

Team Cap
There will be a 3 team per institution rule. Also, the number of adjudicators per institution will follow the N-1 rule. The full capacity number of teams for Korea Australs 2011 will be 120. Registration process will be first come first served based.

Full Registration fee for Debaters and Adjudicators will be 500,000 KRW (deposit included)
Full Registration fee for Observers will be 550,000 KRW (deposit included)

For everyone including debaters, adjudicators and observers, deposit fee is going to cost 150,000 KRW per person. That would bring the sum of 450,000 KRW per team. As we have stated in the Refund policy section, deposit will not be transferable or refundable.

150,000 KRW Deposit is nonrefundable and nontransferable. Once you have paid your deposit fee after the pre-registration, we will not be able to refund that money to you. The reason for this is because the deposit fee will be used for the hotel down payment. Once the down payment is made, we also cannot get any refund for that sum of money.

Full Payment
After the full registration payment is paid, you will be able to get a full refund before May 1st. You will receive 50% of your registration fee back if you notify us between May 1st and June 1st. However, after 1st of June 2011 there will be NO refund. As you know, the tournament will be kicking off in July and final payments for venues would have been already paid.

Time line for Refund
(April 25th – May 1st) Registration fee excluding the deposit will be fully refunded on request.
(May 1st – June 1st) 50% of registration fee excluding the deposit fee will be refunded on request.
(June 1st onward) NO refund will be given.
