Registration, funding, and poster session information:

Students, postdocs, and other early career researchers are strongly
encouraged to submit a poster to present at the poster session.

Travel funding is available: all interested participants may apply for
funding during the registration process and will receive further
instructions in their confirmation email.

*** Funding decisions will be made by April 15th, 2019. ***


Logistical information:

For information about travel to the institute, please check the "Travel
instructions <>" link from
the school homepage.

US-based participants who anticipate that they may receive a travel
allowance from our NSF grant will need to comply with the agency's travel
guidelines (see below).

We have blocked several rooms at a nearby hotel at 69 Euro per night for a
single room (excluding breakfast); information on how to reserve these will
be contained at registration through email. The rooms will be blocked until May
19, 2019.

NSF guidelines for air travel:


Participants may note that, depending on their origin/destination city
pair, they don't necessarily have to use a US-flag carrier to fly to the
school. To see if this is the case, please check the city-pair requirement
of the Open-Skies agreement (there are links on the site above).
