General Note

If you miss any information on this page, please let us know.
There is contact information given at the side of the page.

Note on Fees

The conference fee is 20 euros. Please bring them in cash upon arrival.
We will issue 'private' receipts signed by someone from the LOC. Please let us know if this is a problem for you.
The fee includes the coffee breaks, and the social event. This time the dinner is not included in this fee.


The current estimate for the time for your talk is 15+5 minutes. If there are any changes after we compose the timetable we will let you know.


We added a box for choice of menu and participation in the social event and dinner. If you are already registered, you can still modify this.

Special Session

As exercise in preparing understandable slides we dedicate this year's special session(s) to the preparation of good slides:
We will switch presenters for the slides, meaning if you participate in this session you will present slides from someone else, without having seen them before.
A bit of fun is intended, but it is also meant to be a chance to get in touch with some other part of Auger outside your usual comfort zone and practise including information on the slides.
These sessions are not mandatory! As usual you can present your work in the form of a presentation with slides or on a blackboard.

Time: aim at 10 min for the slides (since someone else will most likely be slower)
Content: please give the speaker a chance and refrain from doing all complicated / joke slides.


You cannot submit an abstract without a indico-account. If you can't create one, send us the contribution via mail and we will create it manually.
If you want to give a talk - which we encourage everyone to do - you can submit an abstract. You can also modify abstracts you submitted. If you submit a first abstract without much detail it will still help us arrange the sessions.

Email List

We have set up a email list, that's not limited to this meeting.
For signing up send a mail with "subscribe auger-youngsters@lists.kit.edu Name Surname" in the subject and no text to sympa@lists.kit.edu. (You should receive a mail asking for confirmation and we will confirm your request soon after.)


Karlsruhe can be reached via car, train, and bus. Within Karlsruhe there are trams and busses connecting to the city centre and the university campus (Campus South).
Due to Karlsruhe's limited size, usually all destinations from within the city can be easily reached with a bike. There are some bike rental services available, e.g. nextbike.de or DB-call a bike callabike-interaktiv.de/de/staedte/Karlsruhe


A (incomplete) list of hotels close to either the trainstation or KIT. (Note: we do not have any contacts with these hotels or got any reduced fees. So if you need to find the cheapest solution, we refer to the usual ways of searching for hotels.)
