    Force Majeure: Unexpected cancellation of the event. The Control Systems Society reserves itself the right to cancel without notice or compensation 45th CDC in the event of force majeure cases (for example, but not limited to acts of nature such as fire, earthquake, hurricane, flood or terrorist attacks). In such cases, the CSS is freed of all responsibility.
    Limitation of liability of the Control Systems Society: In the event of it being impossible for the CSS to carry out the 45th CDC for force majeure cases, so long as this arises from a cause not attributable to the CSS, CSS shall only be obliged to reimburse the payments received subject to deduction of any costs it has incurred in preparing the event. This liability only extends to the payments made directly to the 45h CDC and not to payments made by the attendees to the hotel or airlines.
