Making your participation possible

People may have different needs. While we cannot foresee them all, we can try to address those that you tell us about. Do you need some special local info, e. g., about medical assistance? Or maybe you are a nursing mother who needs a quiet room on the side to attend to your baby's needs? Please, tell us in the comment box when registering. We are also glad to answer e-mail queries (at ntw@amu.edu.pl)

The deadline for the early payment of the registration fee is there for logistic reasons, but we do not want that to be an obstacle to your attendance. We have already shifted the deadline, but if you still cannot meet it, please let us know by e-mail. Moreover, if the normal registration fee (which is calculated as the sum of expenses we expect to have per participant) is too high and impossible to pay for you, please contact us, too. Using some funding that we have received we should be able to reduce the fee to the amount specified for PhD students. We cannot reduce it for everyone, so please only do it if you really cannot afford the normal fee!
