  • There will be no conference fee - and also lunch, snacks, drinks as well as social events will be covered by the summer school. You have, however, to organize and pay for your accommodation and the travel by yourself.
  • We also planned a slot for short-talks, and poster session for the participants. Here, you will have the chance to present your research topic in form of a speed-talk (ca. 5-10 minutes) or a poster to the other participants. This would allow you to immediately get in contact with the other participants sharing your interest. Furthermore, it will give you the opportunity to directly ask the presents experts (Lecturers and Professors) concrete questions regarding your project. Once registered, please give - as soon as possible - a feedback whether you would like to present your research orally, or via a poster (or both) so we can plan better."
