Registration for the ALERT Workshop and School 2024 is OPEN!

Dear ALERT community,

I am pleased to inform you that the registration for the ALERT Geomaterials Workshop and School 2024 is now open! The preliminary programme of the Doctoral School is available here, the programme of the Workshop should be posted soon.

In the continuity of last year edition, a remote access to the doctoral school is proposed at the same price as the on-site option. However, this remote option only gives access to the passive attending of the presentations, and no questions could be asked.

This year, the ALERT Bureau has once again decided to offer one day of accomodation to:

  • all PhD students attending the doctoral school and belonging to an ALERT member institution (in a double room only);
  • all retired researchers attending the workshop.

Please read the hints in the registration form! After filling the form and pressing the button “Register”, a window will open to prompt you to save the invoice as a .pdf file. Please save it for your records! You will also get an email with the registration data afterwards. If you are an ALERT member, the corresponding representative of your ALERT institution will receive the registration data too.

Click here to register for the ALERT Workshop and School 2024.

The deadline for the registration is September 01st! The accommodation 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.
See also hints on how to get to Aussois.

If you need to modify or cancel your registration, please send an email to, mentioning your invoice number, at least one week before the meeting. Individuals who fail to honor their registration will be required to pay a fee to the hotel covering the cost of both the room reservation and the food services.

Looking forward to meeting you in Aussois!

  1. Hi,

    I would like to confirm my understanding regarding the accommodation provided with the workshop and school registration. Is the accommodation included for the entire 6-day trip, or is it only covered for one day as mentioned in the announcement?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    • Dear Lina,

      The price of the room is not included in the registration price. However, they are mentioned in the form. The price for a single room (food + room) is 107€ and for a double room, it is 95€, per night.

      If you are a student from an institution member of ALERT, and take a double room, one night will be paid for you by ALERT.

      Hope it answers your question!

      Kind regards,

  2. Dear Arthur,
    I am a PhD student from the UK. My institution does not have an Alert membership, but I would like to register for an individual membership. This would give me the opportunity to take advantage of the one day of accommodation that you provide. I wonder if this possible?
    Best regards,

    • Dear Jinci,

      Unfortunately, the membership is institutional only. You are therefore not eligible for the one night offered by ALERT.

      Kind regards,

  3. Hi,

    thanks for the response. I have another question: is there going to be a bus like in the previous years that will drive the participants to the venue?

    Thanks a lot

    • There will indeed be a bus in between the Station in Modane and the Centre in Aussois.

      Kind regards,

  4. If I book a single room as a PhD student at a member institution, will I still receive a discount of 95€ (which would correspond to slightly less than one night) or would I not receive any discount at all?

    • Dear Dominik,

      The discount is only applicable if you book a double room.

      Kind regards,

  5. Hi Arthur,
    I am a PhD student in Spain, I have some questions:
    – In this PhD school do we have to present a poster or something similar?
    – If so, what is the deadline etc..

    • Dear Erik,

      You do not have to present anything in order to attend to the doctoral school.

      Kind regards,

  6. Dear Arthur,
    I am a PhD student from the UK, after I registered successfully for ALERT Workshop and School 2024 and got my Invoice number, my university finance team said they prefer to pay by credit card, do you have any comment on it? Or the only option I got is through Invoice number band transfer?

    I appreciate any feedback.
    Best regards,

    • Dear Jinci,

      Unfortunately, it is not possible to pay by credit card. The bank transfer is the only option.

      Kind regards,

  7. I have a question concerning the payment of accommodation costs. Would it be possible to pay the accommodation fees now? If not, I would unfortunately be unable to take part in this event.

    • Dear Hussein,

      Unfortunately, the accommodation costs may only be paid at the center upon arrival/departure.

      Maybe you can contact them directly, they may be able to do something for you but I cannot promise anything.

      Kind regards,

  8. Dear Arthur,

    I submitted an abstract for the workshop, but have not received any notification of acceptance or not, or even confirmation of receipt. Please could you clarify whether I have been accepted to present at the workshop, as I would like to begin looking at organising my travel etc. if possible!

    Kind regards,

    • Dear Ted,

      I don’t have that information unfortunately. You have to contact the organisers of the session directly.

      Kind regards,
