Dear participant,
as you have probably heard via the news, there is a Corona virus (2019-nCoV) outbreak in the Veneto Region, which includes the City of Padova.
To achieve the highest level of effectiveness in the response to such an outbreak, far-reaching measures have been taken by the Ministry of Health, in agreement with the President of the Veneto Region, suspending services and activities open to the public and prohibiting any gathering of people until 1st March 2020.
This ordinance may be subject to changes following any variation of the epidemiological scenario. It is possible that its validity will be extended for one or more weeks.
This would have direct implications for the FuseNet events, scheduled for 3rd to 6th March.

Therefore it has been decided to CANCEL all FuseNet-related events scheduled to take place in Padova next week, including the PhD Event.The aim is to POSTPONE the PhD event until later this year. You will be informed when more is known about this.

With regarding to travel expenses, the advice is to make use of cancellations or cancellation insurance as much as possible.

Kind regards,
The Local and FuseNet Organizing Committees

In order to register for the conference, you have to log in to the CERN Indico system by clicking on "Registration" or "Submit abstract" on the left side menu. You will then be directed to the login page. There are four options to log in:

  • If you have already a CERN account, you can use it.
  • If your home organization participates in the eduGAIN network (there are already 400+ universities and instututions who do), you can sign in with your organization or institution account, after you selected your organization in the eduGAIN dialog box.
  • If you have a public service account such as Facebook, Google, Windows Live or Yahoo, you can use that account to log in.
  • If none of the above works (and only then), you can create a Lightweight CERN account on the CERN Account Management page. Be sure to remember the username and password, since you will need that account to submit any abstract, slides or proceedings.

If you somehow have trouble to create a CERN lightweight account or using your public service account for Indico access, please restart your browser. If that does not help, try to delete cookies, then empty the browser cache.
