List of participants

The list of participants can be found in the proceedings (see below).

Hotel accommodation

The organisation hopes that many participants from outside Amsterdam will stay in one of the selected hotels, since this will create a good and creative atmosphere.
For hotel accomodation, please contact the organisation. Then you may benefit from a 10% reduction on hotel costs.

If you can't arrange financial support from your institution or university, you are encouraged to send us beforehand a request for payment of the hotel costs. However note that you may be asked to share a room with another participant.

How to reach the Euclides building

Here you can find out how to reach the Euclides building of the Korteweg-de Vries Institute, where the welcome of the Study group will take place.


The proceedings are available in digital form in postscript and PDF formats.
