(The workshop is public and open to all. Those who want to attend without presenting should send an email to the Silke Brandau. We would then inform you of the hotel where all guests are staying and would make a booking for the conference dinner (if of interest). For organizational reasons, we would like to ask those who attend without presenting to make their own accommodation arrangements.)
