Walking tour will take place on Wednesday, 14:30-16:30. 
The registration and information desk will be open on Sunday between 17:00-20:00. It will also be open during most of the lectures and poster sessions (see the attached schedule for details).  


The organizers, similar to previous years, estimate that the effort in participation in the school corresponds to 2 ECTS. Each student needs to confirm with his/her own doctoral program whether those ECTS can be officially granted.


Poster sessions 

Important note 

All participants are strongly encouraged to present a poster about their research. For COST Action grant awardee, this requirement is mandatory.


The recommended poster size is a single A0 page (1200 x 840 mm). Please bring your printed poster with you to the School. Additionally, please send your poster in the .PDF format to by March 25th, so we could include your file into the School handout material.
