Registration and Scholarships

There are three types of registration: full scholarship, regular scholarship and regular application. Registers must select one of the three categories just mentioned.

  • We will have around 35 full scholarships for the workshop participants (only students), the scholarship includes 6 nights in shared room during the event, meals during the day in the event and the registration fee. Transportation to the event is paid by the applicant.
  • The regular scholarship only covers the registration fee. It is basically for local students or foreign students who do not achieve the full scholarship.
  • For the regular application, the submission will only consist on the abstract of the presentation (without recommendation letter and curriculum vitae). The applicant must cover his/her registration fee in the indicated dates to be included in the event.

Those interested in participating in the IWOBIP’16 must submit the following documents in PDF format to the following email address :

  • The submission form posted in the workshop’s webpage.
  • An abstract of the research work to expose (between 250 and 500 words) with three keywords in the appropriate format (available on the event’s webpage).
  • A recommendation letter (preferably from your advisor –in case of students-).
  • Short curriculum vitae.

The results of the Scientific Committee will be decisive and will be posted on the workshop’s webpage. Those who will participate in the workshop (regardless the registration type) must complete a form with personal information.
