• What's the conference language?
    We are expecting a diverse, international audience. Moreover, the organizers also name about a dozen different countries their home. Hence, the whole conference and all the associated events will be in English. This also implies that short talks and posters must be presented in English.
  • Is there an application or participation fee?
    Registration for and participation in HFYLS 5 are free of charge! This includes the plenary lectures, poster sessions, workshops (more information upcoming), refreshments during coffee breaks and light lunch. There might be a small charge for participation in the social events. Information on this will be provided later.
  • How can I apply for a travel grant?
    Please note that we can award travel grants only to participants who present their own research in a short talk during our conference. To apply, please fill out our registration form completely, including the abstract for your short talk, a short motivation statement that explains why you would like to join HFYLS 5, and upload your CV as a PDF file. Also, please indicate to which of our four sessions your research topics most closely matches. The deadline for applications for travel grants is January 22, 2017.
