More exciting news about MCMSki IV!
First thing first, the 16 contributed sessions are now all-set, having gotten the stamp of approval from the scientific committee! Thanks to everyone who submitted a session proposal. (There were so many proposals that we alas had to reject some, as well as every single talk proposal… Sorry people: we hope to hear about your research advances via your posters!) See the MCMSki IV website for the whole list. Apart from the plenary lectures, and the round table on software held on the second evening, there will be three parallel sessions on the remaining three slots for each day of the conference, which means 25 sessions total!
Second, the “call for posters” is open, simply meaning that anyone wishing to present a poster at MCMSki IV on Monday evening (or Tuesday night if we cannot accommodate all posters within a single evening!) is welcome to do so! This will take place in the conference centre as well (with an open bar to keep up with traditions) To this effect, if you intend to present a poster, (a) tick the box in the registration form and (b) …wait for further instructions on the MCMSki IV website about sending your abstract as we are trying to find an easy way to store and publish posters there. Simple as AB(C)!
Last, the registration page is now open! So fell free to register at your earliest convenience. The deadline for early bird registration is October 15, 2013 however hotel rooms are likely to vanish much earlier than that, leaving you on your own to find accommodation in Chamonix (not such a terrible task, actually!)
