Deadline for registration : 30 April 2007

Registration proceeds as follows:

First Step: Conference registration

First register as a new user on the ConfTool Management System. An account will be created for you (login/password).

Then log in again with your account login+password: as a user you will then be able to register as a participant (register as a regular participant) and submit an abstract for a poster presentation if you wish. The poster abstracts will be examined by the SOC and you will be told by the end of april 2007 whether or not your poster has been retained, depending on the number of poster submissions and the available space at the conference. Time will be reserved every day for poster presentations (see "Scientific Program").

You will have to pay for the conference fees (see "Practical Information"). The total number of participants will be limited to 150, possibly 200 persons. Priority will be given to applicants who have paid the fees. Payment as early as possible is thus highly suggested.

Second Step: Hotel reservation

Please go to the "Centre des Congrès" website:
to make your hotel reservation and to register for the social events (see "Practical Information"). This part will be paid directly through a secured procedure to the "Centre des Congrès" that will take care of your accomodation during the conference.

Financial Support

Applications have been made to various sponsors to get financial support for the organization of the conference. Unfortunately, answers from these sponsors are not expected before a month or two before the conference. It is thus not possible at the present stage to figure out whether or not we will be able to provide any financial support.
People requesting such a support must send an e-mail to with a copy to (please indicate Chamonix2007 as the "subject" of the mail). Once answers from the different sponsor applications will have been received, you will be personally informed whether your request can be fullfilled or not. Priority will be given to PhD students.
Given the limited number of participants at the conference (see above), we suggest that you pay the registration fees as early as possible. In case we can provide you eventually with some support, this will go directly to your hotel bill or to the reimbursment of the fees.
