Workshop Format and Refund Policy

We will decide and inform in September on the possible implementation of hybrid/online components of the workshop. This concerns also a
possible reduction of registration fees if the conference format must be adapted.

In any case, please register with one of the displayed (on-site conference) options. Exceeding registration fees (in the case of a switch to hybrid/online or the impossibility to travel to Berlin) will be refunded. See also the refund policy on the registration page.
