Due to generous sponsorship from the Vice-Rectorate for Research and Junior Researchers’ Promotion of the University of Graz, there is no registration fee beyond accommodation cost. In addition, we can offer support for accommodation cost for a limited number of registered participants. If you would like to apply for accommodation support and are not registered yet, please register at your earliest convenience and indicate the application for support in the textbox supplied for notes. If you would like to apply for accommodation support an are already registered, please email the OC with a short note.

Social Event

There will be a social dinner at a local Buschenschank on Thursday evening at 19:00, namely at Weingut Heuriger Gramm, Rupertistraße 17, A-8431 Gralla, which is a little more than 5 km away from the JUFA. While it is possible to walk there, transfer there and back would be most conveniently arranged among participants by car. We have pre-ordered “Steirische Brettljause”, a selection of local products, which will be covered from the workshop budget. Drinks and/or additional items have to be ordered and paid separately by the participants.
