    Registration and abstract submission

    You are warmly invited to join us for two full days of talks and discussion at the Weierstrass Institute in Berlin. Participants are asked to register in advance, because capacity is limited. If you wish to propose a 30 minute talk, please submit an abstract along with your registration. Please use our online registration system here. There is no registration fee, but participants should arrange their own accommodation.
