Frequently Asked Questions
Can I still sign up?
We're afraid the application process is closed. The deadline for applications was on 11 March 2013. We received just under 400 applications, for 100 available places. Applicants were selected in an internal review process. Being four fold overbooked means that we were forced to disappoint a lot of people. At this point, we are afraid there is no way to apply for this summer school any more.
However, there will be at least three MLSS instances over the next year, organized by other teams. While we are not involved in the organization of these events, we have no doubts they will be great Summer Schools, and we strongly recommend applying there.
We will also record all talks during the summer school and, subject to speakers' permission, release them online later this year, after the school has ended.
Will the tutorials be recorded? Will they be available online? How about a live stream?
We will record all talks during the summer school and, subject to speakers' permission, release them online later this year, after the school has ended. At the moment we are not planning a live stream.
Is there a vegetarian option during the lunches / dinners?
All the catered lunches and dinners, including the conference banquet, will be buffets (so you can help yourself). There will always be vegetarian alternatives available. If you have other dietary requirements, please let us know.
Can I change the title and content of my poster?
The corresponding field in the application asked for a tentative poster title. Feel free to change the content of your poster, even present something completely different from what you originally proposed. The point of the poster is to give you a chance to present your own work to the other participants. As long as you are confident about presenting it to your colleagues, it's fine with us.
What size should my poster be?
Our poster boards fit posters up to A0 size, in both landscape and portrait format.
Can I print posters in Tübingen?
In principle, yes. There are several printing services in town (for example this one). However, their opening times do not always harmonize with the MLSS schedule, and we can make no statements about prices, quality or the staff's English language skills. If you can print your poster at home and bring it along in a poster tube, that's probably the best option.
