Early career researchers (within six years of their PhD award) and PhD students are welcome to present an abstract proposal for a very limited number of short talks and for the poster session. The organizing committee will provide few accommodation grants to young participants whose abstracts will be selected for either oral or poster presentation.

The window to submit proposals for talks/posters is now closed.
