Registration Instructions:
The number of participants is limited to 60. Application for a place in a specific workshop will be made via ConfTool. When applying, a curriculum vitae and a letter of motivation (500-700 words) is to be uploaded as a file. Applicants also need to declare that an allocated place will be taken up,

As the selection of participants is made by the Scientific Committee together with the experts who lead the workshops, the CV and the letter of motivation is to be presented in English. As the summer school is supposed to be
multilingual, the curriculum needs to contain information about the knowledge of languages.

Preference will be given to young scholars of the Humanities who are planning, or are already involved with a technology-based research project and describe this project in a qualified way in their motivation letter.

Young scholars of Engineering and Computer Sciences are expected to describe their specialities and interests in such a way that also non specialists can follow, and that they support their expectations from the summer school with
good arguments.

When allocating a place in a specific workshop, not only will the preferences expressed by the applicants be taken into account, but also the needs shown by the project descriptions.

Applicants who would like to present a project during one of the project presentation sessions or during the poster session should upload a description of the project (500-700 words) in English when they apply for a place at the summer school through ConfTool.
