Public Conference on Thursday 3rd December 2015
Although the Interdisciplinary AGEP-Winter School is meant for a special target group as aforementioned, we will have a public conference on Thursday, 3rd December 2015. On this special day, we will open the conference to anyone who is interested in participating in the presentations that will be offered by different speakers allotted for that day. The detailed program and the lists of topics that shall be presented on that day can be found here: Program. However, due to space limitation in the allocated seminar halls we must limit the number of guests who can attend the public conference. We have created an online registration platform where you can register for the public conference (see below). Selection will be based on “first-come, first-served” basis. The online registration platform will be closed as soon as enough members of the public have registered for the public conference. You are therefore advised to register yourself as soon as possible! Kindly please note that the Winter School will be closed to the public on Tuesday 1st December, Wednesday 2nd December and on Friday 4th December 2015. During these three days, only the invited target group members shall be allowed to take part in the Winter School. We beg for your understanding.
