The Microsystem Festival is a learning community. Our hope and goal is that all our lecturers will stay the entire conference and attend other seminars in order to learn more. Therefore one of the lecturers at each session will attend the day when he or she is presenting without cost.
The evening buffet on day 1 is included in the fee and those attending day 2 only, are most welcome to attend the evening buffet on day one. Just make sure you register for it.

All prices are exclusive of VAT.

Registration will open in December 2019. Further details on how to register will be posted then.

As lecturer you still need to register to the conference. This is important for several reasons:
We need to know which seminars you wish to attend other than your own and please make sure you also choose the seminar in which you are the lecturer.
We need to know if you are attending the buffet and if you have food allergies.
We need to know if you are staying the entire conference.

We still need to know your invoice address. This is merely a technicality which is needed for our customer database system. You will not be invoiced. (Note: this does not apply to seminars with more than one lecturer. Lecturer 2 and 3 etc will be invoiced).
