Schedule

Each day will consist of workshops in parallel sessions followed by a keynote lecture. Each workshop will be five hours divided into three sessions: 2 h, 1.5 h and 1.5 h. As the workshops run in parallel, it is not possible to complete more than one workshop a day. 

Lunch is not provided, as there are several restaurants, cafes and pubs nearby that have reasonably priced (4-6 €) daily offers. Check the venue tab for suggested options.

Please remember to sign the registration sheet each morning at the workshop! This proves your presence in order to get 2 ECTS and forms the basis for the funding.
