First of all, we would like to thank you for your interest in our conference. We are looking forward to meeting you all in Strasbourg for what promises to be an inspiring academic event!
You will find the registration form at the bottom of this page. Please return it to Alenka Barber-Kersovan (barber[at]aspm-online[dot]org), Elsa Grassy (e[dot]grassy[at]yahoo[dot]fr) and Jedediah Sklower (jedediah-sklower[at]hotmail[dot]com). At this time you do not need to send any payment. The registration fee of €30 (current students exempted) and any additional amount for meals will have to be paid in cash at the conference.
The programme is online here.
Each workshop is one hour and thirty minutes long, which gives each speaker roughly 30 minutes. Please keep your actual presentation down to twenty minutes, musical excerpts included, so as to leave some time for Q&A and interaction between participants.
Since the conference language is English, we need those of you that submitted an abstract in another language to send us an English translation of the title of your presentation before April 1.
Conference rooms are equipped with video projectors and screens only. Laptops will be provided by panel moderators (to be announced later) in case you cannot bring your own. Please have your powerpoint presentation on a USB key. Contributors from countries using different electrical standards are requested to bring their own converters and/or plug adapters.

Take the A tram to Illkirch or the D tram to Aristide Briand. Change at Homme de Fer for the C tram to Neuhof. Get off at Esplanade. The MISHA will be on your right.
If you are driving there from the A4 highway (coming from the NW): Follow the signs for Germany-Offenbourg, then follow “Esplanade” after the tunnel (keep to your left). Turn left and take the Danau bridge (pont du Danube). After Ankara street (rue d’Ankara) and the traffic light, there is a stop sign: turn left into London Street (rue de Londres). At the next traffic light, go straight until Place d’Athènes: the MISHA is on your right.

Strasbourg has a well-connected train station (2 hours and 30 minutes from Paris), as well as an airport (Entzheim: http://www.strasbourg.aeroport.fr/). Shuttles connect the airport to the center of the city every 30 minutes on average (the trip takes 9 minutes). For more information on the shuttles, visit this page: http://www.strasbourg.aeroport.fr/index.php/airport-information/access-to-the-airport/shuttle-train. Tickets are €3.90 and can be bought at the airport, either before you exit the building (the machine will be to your left) or on the platform.
If you’re landing in Frankfurt, you can book a bus with Lufthansa that will take you to the Strasbourg train station in 3 hours. This can be a great option if you are coming from afar.
