Please complete the registration by June 18, 2018 at the latest.
This year's annual IZN Retreat which comprises an interesting and exciting program will take place from July 1 (Sunday) to July 2 (Monday), again at Kloster Schöntal. Many of you know the location from the last retreats.
The program can be found here.
Please register online until June 18 (no exceptions)!! and fill out the form completely. The price for the two days (incl. full board) is between EUR 138.- to 153.- per person. For those who will not stay overnight, the participation fee for one day will be about EUR 65.-
Everybody (except the speakers and the students of the Major Neuroscience) will have to pay the bill directly before departing from Schöntal. People may be reimbursed from travel budgets of their own groups.
Transportation to Schöntal will be by private car or by bus. Due to limited space in the bus, we need names and email addresses of those people who would like to ride on the bus (one-way or round-trip).
An important part of each IZN Retreat is the poster session. In addition to the obligatory posters presented by the IZN PhD students on Sunday evening, the organizing committee encourages also Master students and IZN groups to present their work with a poster.
Please use the IZN Poster Template
Please register your poster online with your poster details and whether or not you wish to participate in the poster contest by June 18, 2018 at the latest.
As last year there will be a prize (100€) for the best IZN student poster (IZN PhD students and Major Neuroscience students). Students who want to participate in the poster contest should register their poster and also write an abstract and a short statement of significance of the work not longer than 400 words and send both to Claudio Acuna <firstname.lastname@example.org> by June 11, 2018 at the latest.
On Sunday afternoon we will again organize a canoeing tour on the Jagst (costs about €22/person) or alternatively a guided tour through the monastery (about €4).
The canoeing tour will be from Krautheim to Kloster Schöntal and will last approximately 3.5 hours. Only those who can swim are allowed to register for canoeing. Please make sure that you are in a good physical shape, canoeing is rather exhausting. If this is your first canoe trip you should find an experienced partner with whom you share the boat. After registration for the canoeing you will get more information concerning payment etc.
We look very much forward to a great, inspiring IZN Retreat 2018!
