The deadline for online registration is December 10, 2004. All abstracts must be submitted through the online registration system, which will open on October 30, 2004.

Registration Procedure

The deadline for online registration is December 10, 2004. All abstracts must be submitted through the online registration system, which will open on October 30, 2004.

The number of participants is strictly limited to ensure an efficient interaction between students and lecturers. We will accept a maximum of 120 students or post-doctoral researchers and 30 principal investigators. All applicants are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract, since selection of participants will be made primarily based on submitted abstracts.

All abstracts submitted by graduate students or postdoctoral fellows as first author will be evaluated by members of the scientific advisory board. The authors of the best 3 abstracts will receive a prize, the "Gosau Young Investigator Award", at the end of the course.

(For the final registration you must submit your personal registration information and abstract at the same time.  It is also possible to pre-register by clicking here.  Pre-registration has the advantage that we shall keep you informed about the developments, and it helps with respect to first-come-first-serve, which is amongst our criteria of acceptance.  For pre-registration one does not need to submit an abstract of the presentation one would like to give.  However, ultimately registration as below will be necessary to be admitted to the course.)
