Abstract submission (optional)

All applicants are encouraged to present their own research during the workshop. If you do not have any research of you own (yet), you are more than welcome to apply with a presentation based on a scientific article of your interest. Please note the complete reference of the article in your application in order to avoid plagiarism. The presentations will take place only during the workshop. The topics will be further discussed in small groups of students and a mentor, with a focus on developing the scientific and communication skills of the students.

All applications will be reviewed by a scientific committee, which will select the participants based on their applications. Some of abstracts will be chosen for a short oral presentation (greatest relevance in relation to workshop topic). The other abstracts may be chosen for the poster session.
