Since the YAO2019 conference has limited space, it might not be possible to accept all applicants.

After the application phase (1 February to 1 of March), you will get an email telling you whether you have been accepted (by 1st of April). Once you have been accepted, we will send you a mail with details concerning the payment of the conference fee (300 euro) and accomodation as well as further information about YAO2019.

Participants are asked for a contribution to the scientific programme in the form of either a talk (12 min. + 3 min. questions) or a poster on a subject of their research. Please give your preference in the form. In case more people apply for a talk than the number of available slots, some people will be asked to present a poster instead.

Accommodation in double rooms will be organised by the YAO2019 team in a hotel nearby the conference hall. This is included in the conference fee.
