Some notes on registration / abstract submission:

  • Some of you had registered on the older event page which is no longer active. I have manually re-registered you here. Ideally you should be able to view and modify your registration on the new page. If you are not able to do that, I would advise you to register again, and I will remove your duplicate registration. This is particularly important for students and postdocs who wish to submit an abstract.
  • Some of you had registered earlier on this page but without a password. If you create an indico account now, you should be able to associate the account with an existing registration (made without a password, but with the same email address). You should then be able to modify your registration details and submit an abstract.


Please register only if you are planning to come to the event in person. We have received some requests for remote participation. We will try to set up a Zoom channel, however primarily only following the lectures.
