  • We have a very affordable registration fee for students & junior postdocs: 295 euros. Your boss will have no excuse…
  • Furthermore, Santiago de Compostela offers many cheap accommodation options. For example, check out the 14 euro/night, youth hostel-style Seminario Menor.
  • The Workshops are back: here, in a more relaxed atmosphere, you will have a chance to present your work and interact with top experts in your field.
  • Become a Junior Session Co-Chair: for every session/round table, there will be one Senior and one Junior Co-Chair. If you are interested in any of them, please send a short motivational e-mail message to:
