Are we a Unique Species
on a Unique Planet?

– or are we just the ordinary Galactic standard?

Copenhagen July 30 to August 2, 2024.

The registration is open until July 1, 2024, but closes if there are no more seats available. It is presently open.

  • Registration fee is 250€ if paid before May 1, 2024.
  • Registration fee is 300€ if paid after May 1, 2024.

The registration fee includes lunches served in the canteen next to the conference venue (and coffee breaks).

There will be a conference dinner in the historical ceremonial hall at the old university buildings in the centre of town on the evening of Wednesday July 31, 2024.

Approximately half of the dinner cost is financed by external grants toward the conference budget, but you need to pay the other half, 60€, yourself together with the conference fee if you will like to participate in the dinner. Even if you have applied for (and being granted) waiving of the fee, you will still need to pay the 60€ if you want to participate in the dinner.

There will not be published proceedings after the meeting, but instead all talks will be filmed and uploaded to the conference webpage or similar. To be allowed to film the talks we need explicit permission from all speakers to do so.

Posters: There will be a “pop-up” presentation session of the posters with just a one-minute announcement per poster. Presenters are requested to submit a one-page slide of their poster in advance, such that they can be organized onto our conference pc and be on the screen the moment you step forward, so that you have the full minute to point at the poster, mention what subject it is about, and tell your name and where to find your poster. 

Contributing talks: There is space for only a limited number of contributing talks (19 in total as the program is scheduled right now).

Grants: We have a limited amount of grants available to support waiving of the fee and/or traveling expenses.

Deadline for application for grants and contributing talks is May 1, and you can expect an answer no later than June 1st.

How to register and pay for participation:

The registration is open.

Please note: Your registration is not complete before you have paid the registration fee.

When the registration form has been completed, you will receive a link to the payment page.

Once your payment(s) have been received, you will receive a confirmation.

If you have applied for waiving of the fee and/or other support, your application for this will be evaluated by the organizers and you will be informed about this by June 1st.

If granted you will receive a reimbursement at the conference.
