Registration

Please contact one of the organisers or Ms Willhardt, +49 (0)551 39 7691 if you want to participate. Limited funds are available, in particular for phd students and postdocs. In order to reimburse travel expenses original tickets are needed. If tickets are needed for the journey back, we will first make a copy of them while you are here. You can send the originals to us when you are back home. Bookings of hotel rooms should be coordinated by Ms Willhardt.

Please notice, the deadline for registration is 19 May 2010! The registration fee for all participants amounts to 20 Euro.

Conference Dinner

If you intend to come to the conference dinner on Thursday, please send a confirmation e-mail to Giorgio Trentinaglia Giorgio Trentinaglia. Speakers are automatically included in the list of participants, so they need not send an e-mail unless they plan not to come to the dinner. People who confirm will be contacted later on to choose their menu (there will be of course a vegetarian option).
