You need to register in advance, as space is limited. Please only register if you really will attend, otherwise you will block places for others. You must attend the first session (09:15 20 October 2017) if you want to participate (and attendance at all other scheduled sessions is mandatory).


The file organization.xlsx (below) will be constantly updated with new literature suggestions. New articles will be listed individually (all those available at the beginning of the course are in the zip file). The books are only suggestions; there may well be others.
