To submit an abstract and become a participant of the 3rd AEK Autumn School, please click here. All abstract submitters are cordially invited to present a poster as well as a short lecture.

The program of the Autumn School consists of lectures by invited speakers as well as presentations of submitted abstracts by participants. Because of this we ask all participants to take an active part during the three-day event. The final program will be published as soon as the abstract submission is closed and all abstracts are included in the program.
