Board and lodging costs should be paid directly to the hotel in Zakopane (major credit cards accepted).

No individual hotel reservation is required unless you want to arrange your stay individually (please choose this option while filling in the registration form).

Young PhD researchers and senior PhD students are supposed to present short (20 min.) talks on their work. At registration please provide a title and (if possible) references of published papers on which your talk will be based.
