Application to attend the school is now closed
The number of attendees has been limited to about 110, for practical purposes and also with a view to promote a good interaction with the lecturers. Due to the number of requests for participation far exceeding this figure, registration proceeds in two stages. First a call for requests for participation is launched. Requests need to be supported by a motivation letter and a letter from an advisor or recommending person. Potential participants have then be selected from the requests, and a short waiting list created. In a second stage only those applicants selected are invited to register.
Our goal is to keep the registration fees to a moderate level thanks to many supporting institutions. In very rare and well motivated cases scholarships may be granted to partly or fully waive these fees, when cost of registration would clearly prevent attendance.

The request for participation consists of four steps:
At this stage, you should not proceed to payment of the fees.
Everybody is eligible to request participation. The selection will be based on the requests received by Apr 15th 2015. A number of criteria will be used to select participants, such as country of residence, work topic, number of applicants from a given institute, motivation letter and advisor support. Acceptance for selection and waiting list status will be notified by May 15th 2015. Later acceptance from the waiting list will be notified starting June 15th 2015, the deadline for selected attendees to proceed to payment.
You may either:
In all cases, please rename the file based on your name: NAME-registration.doc, NAME-registration.odt or NAME-registration.pdf.
The fees will cover accommodation (arrival August 24 evening, departure September 4th morning), lunches, coffee breaks, excursion and social activities. Travel costs to and from Cluj-Napoca remain at the charge of the attendees. The registration fees are 400€ for students, PhDs and post-docs, and 600€ for all other attendees (tenure academic positions, private companies etc.).
No payment should proceed unless you have explicitely been notified of your acceptance. If and only once you have received notice of acceptance you should proceed to the payment of the fees as soon as possible. If the payment has not been received by June 15th, your participation will be cancelled for the benefit of applicants in the waiting list.
Details may be found in the rules of payment document. Please pay attention to mention "ESM2015" and the name(s) of the participant(s) with the bank transfer.
