additional space for tutorials


For the first time, tutorials have been implemented in the Paris Session.

Due to the success of this initiative we had to close the registrations for tutorials because of overbooking.

We recently managed to obtain a larger space so we are now able to offer additional registrations.

If you have not registered to a tutorial yet, and if you want to register to one or two of the six proposed tutorials, then you can do it through this link:

Please complete the formbefore 15 August 2016.

In case of overbooking, the principle of first come, first served will be applied.

If necessary, we will also have a waiting list for each tutorial.

If your demand cannot be satisfied you will be informed in due time.


With best regards,

Vicky Weiss
