This conference has been conceived as an expert-level, Gordon-style meeting, and we expect many leading scientists and early-career researchers from all over the world to participate. The total number of participants varies between 50 and 100 persons depending on the year and venue, and includes a mostly keynote and invited lectures, with a limited number of contributed talks and posters.

The conference has a VERY COMPETITIVE registration fee that can be considered ‘all-inclusive’. It includes the registration / participation in the conference, lodging, all meals, as well as the social program (which will include an excursion to one of Southwest Michigan’s famous distilleries or breweries). For details see the registration page.
