  • after April 1, 2022: Euro 650

The number of participants is limited to 37.

For registration, please, send an e-mail to In the e-mail, you have to provide the following information:

  • Name, Prename
  • Institution with complete address
  • Status (Master-student, PhD-student, PostDoc)
  • sex (there are 2- or 3-bed rooms, and we have to plan accordingly)
  • VAT-Nr. (for participants from the European Union)
  • E-mail-address (to send the invoice to)

After receiving your complete registration e-mail, we will list you (first-come-first-serve basis) for participation. In the second week of May, we will send you an invoice and expect the fee by bank transfer within one week. Else, we delete you from the list of participants.

For the hands-on parts it is required to bring a Laptop with an installation of Bempp. This can be obtained from  


The Söllerhaus is located in the beautiful Kleinwalsertal. It offers accomodation for up to 41 persons in two or three bed rooms.

Although it belongs to Austria, it can be reached only via Oberstdorf in Germany. The nearest airports are Munich (MUC) and Memmingen (FMM).
