The MLSS's popularity continues to rise. Even more so than in previous years, we received many times more applications than there are available places (the size of the group is limited by the available seats in the lecture hall). Hence participants have to be selected by an internal review based on the documents they provided during the application. We ask everyone who submitted an application for their understanding in this process.

In addition, this year, we are happy to be have secured an accommodation package with the local youth hostel, for a fixed price of 400.00 EUR + VAT for the entire duration of the MLSS including half-board. Participants who do not want to use this option can arrange for accommodation in Tübingen privately.

Some frequently asked questions from past years

There have been repeated questions regarding the poster sessions. Posters are a long-standing tradition at the MLSS. Each applicant is asked to bring along a poster presentation covering some of their own work. This does not need to be published work (ongoing work, or work resulting from undergraduate projects is also fine, were applicable). While the day program covers broad areas of general interest, the poster sessions offer participants a chance to discuss their own work with their peers. The poster presentations will be a relaxed affair: Posters will be distributed across a room, with participants presenting to small groups of two or three standing in front of their posters.

Travel Stipends

A limited number of stipends will be available to students in need of financial support. Recipients of such stipends were informed of the details in their confirmation mail.
