Poster session

Participants are encouraged to present posters on their research work and
interests. The work described does not have to be novel. For example,
students can present their experience of reproducing published work.

Presenting a poster increases the chance of being selected. Participants
that choose to present a poster will be asked to submit an abstract during

Social events

The programme includes several opportunities for socializing and
networking, such as welcoming reception, half-day trip around Cluj,
farewell dinner.


A limited number of scholarships will be offered to students, based on
financial considerations.
