Draft programme for emtacl15

A first glimpse on the emtacl15 programme.

The speakers had a deadline set to the 9th of January to confirm their participation at the conference, we still miss 1 or 2 speakers confirming their participation but we dare to put their name on display before they have confirmed 100 %. The programme so far looks interesting, but as with everyone having experiences with organizing conferences their is always last minute changes. You might notice that the headings for the different sessions is lacking, they will soon be supplied with topic headings.

When we get all speakers bios, photos and abstracts in PDFs we will eventually also link to those from the programme.

Hope you all feel tempted by the programme and decide to participate at the conference. The conference registration is hereby declared open.

Conference venue Rica Nidelven Hotel has changed name to Scandic Nidelven Hotel

The hotel and venue where emtacl15 will be held is still the same as with previous emtacl conferences, the only difference is the change of name from Rica Nidelven Hotel to Scandic Nidelven Hotel.

Thanks for all submitted abstracts/papers…

Thanks to all of you submitting an abstract/paper. Now it’s time for the emtacl15 IPC to read the abstracts and accept or reject. The 15th of December we will hopefully have our list of accepted contributions and be almost ready to present a first glimpse of something looking like a programme for the conference.

So things are happening….

Abstract submission deadline extended
