The deadline for submission of abstracts is extended to 2 January 2017.
A PhD course (4,5 ECTS) is arranged in connection with the conference. The course will consist of two parts: 1) activities during 7-8 March, including special sessions with the key note speakers of the conference, 2) the conference itself taking place 9-10 March. There is no tuition fee for the PhD course, but PhD students will have to pay for their own travel, accommodation and meals during the entire course, i.e. 7-8 March and 9-10 March.
