Once your abstract has been accepted, you will receive an email with instructions regarding the payment of your registration fee of CHF 475 and our Terms and Conditions. Since your registration will be confirmed only after the payment has been made, please pay your registration fee as soon as possible. Given the limited number of places (participants), the priority will be given to the first registered participants, meaning the first ones that paid the registration fee.

Once your registration has been confirmed, a room will be automatically booked for you at the Hotel Monte Verità (see Accommodation) from Sunday January, 27th  to Friday February, 1st, 2013.

If you are interested to  simply participate at the workshop without giving a talk, please send an email to and you will be added to a waiting list. Although priority is given to the young researchers giving a talk, if the number of registered participants giving a talk is below the capacity of the workshop, you will be contacted by the end of October 2012 with a confirmation of your participation at the event.
