Registration and reimbursement

All participants must register by June 30, 2014. Please use the registration form provided below. After submitting this form, you will receive a confirmation email that includes the banking details for making a wire-transfer. Your registration will be considered definitive when both the registration form and registration fee are received. You will then receive a receipt that can be used for reimbursement purposes.

Registration fees include conference fees, hotel accommodation for 4 nights, all meals and taxes:

Affiliation fee single room fee double room
EPFL* 700 CHF 600 CHF
All other Universities 900 CHF 800 CHF
Industry 1'100 CHF 1'000 CHF

The registration fees expenses for PhD students and Postdocs from the Universities of Zürich, Berne, Fribourg, and Neuchâtel will be collected directly from each University at the closing of registration, so no registration fees will be collected from these participants.
