Registration is a necessary condition for attendance. To register for the conference, please send an e-mail to service-abc.bagss(at)uni-bamberg.de.

Deadline for registration is 08 August, 2017.

___ Apply for a Travel Grant

To apply for a travel grant, please send us a self-written statement about the need of financial support. The document is preferably a pdf-file with a maximum of two pages long and should be sent to us together with your abstract for the conference.

Your statement should explain:

The travel grant recipients will first have to cover the travel costs themselves and afterwards submit their receipts to the ABC office for a reimbursement. An application form for the travel expenses will be provided. Once the receipts for the travel expenses have been submitted, it generally takes about two weeks to receive reimbursement.

The fee for the dinner is 27.50 €, this includes a soup (vegetarian), a main course which you can choose out of four options (pork, beef, fish, vegetarian/vegan), one drink (soft drink or beer) and a dessert with coffee or tea afterwards.

In your registration mail, please confirm whether you would like to attend the dinner. Please note that the places for the dinner are limited.
