If you want to apply for participation in the program, please fill in the application form. (Invited participants also need to fill in the form. Their applications will of course be approved and we will do our best to allocate the requested dates to them.) Due to space restrictions, the total number of participants is strictly limited. You will be informed by the organizers shortly after the application deadline whether your application has been approved. A minimum stay of one working week is required and we encourage participants to stay for a period of at least two weeks. There is no registration fee. PhD students and Postdoctoral fellows are eligible for travel grants to participate in the program. If you are interested in such a grant, please mark the corresponding field in the application form, briefly summarize your research interests in the space provided and indicate in the comments field an estimate of your expected travel expenses. Since only a limited number of grants is available, decision concerning the grants will be made on a case-by-case basis and you will be notified shortly after the application deadline. Note that accepted program participants, whose stay includes the week of the conference 17-20 August, need not register for the conference separately.
