The registration for the ALERT Geomaterials Workshop and School 2016 is open now (the programme of the workshop and school is still preliminary)! You can register using the form at http://alertgeomaterials.eu/forms/registration_2016.html. Please read the hints in the registration form! After filling the form and pressing the button “Register”, a window will open with your invoice. Please print the window with the invoice for your records! You will also get an email with the registration data afterwards. In case of the registration of the ALERT members, the corresponding representative of the ALERT institution will receive the registration data too.
The deadline for the registration is the September 23rd! The accomodation in Aussois will be processed in the order of the registrations (see the hints in the registration form). Please note that the number of rooms in the CNRS “Centre Paul Langevin“ is limited.
