GCS2023 conference and school

APPLY NOW SwissMAP research station, Les Diableret, Switzerland, Aug 28 – Sept 8, 2023

This will be a hybrid mode event: most speakers will be in-person, with some virtual speakers; about half of the participants will be in-person, and talks will also be live-streamed on Zoom. Videos will be archived on a youtube channel. Further details will appear on the conference webpage and on the SwissMAP website.

Registrations are now open. We have a limited amount of fundings to support participation of PhD students and postdocs. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so please apply soon if you are interested in receiving support.

Immediately preceeding GCS2023 there are two distinct events, a Nordita Program (August 14-25) and a conference in Regensburg (August 14-18). Although these events are logically separate, with different organizing teams and registrations, we purposefully scheduled these events close to each other to avoid too many transatlantic flights.
