This message contains further information. The online mini-EMLAR will be held on Thursday the 16th and Friday the 17th of April 2020. All talks and tutorials will be available through Microsoft Teams; we are in the process of writing some instructions on how to use it and will share it with you later.

Please note that all times in the program are in GMT+2.

The tutorials are interactive, so if you want to participate make sure you have the required software on your computer. Before the start of the tutorials, the speaker will send out an email containing information about their tutorial, the necessary software, and, in some cases, the Powerpoint slides and some exercises.

In order for us to have a general idea of how many people will attend each session and to make sure you will receive the needed information before attending the tutorial, please fill in the following form with the email you intend to use with Microsoft Teams. This email-address will be used to invite you to the correct Microsoft Teams sessions. Because of the interactive nature of mini-EMLAR, you can join any tutorial with any amount of experience – the tutorials are no longer split into the regular and advanced versions. On top of that, you can attend as many sessions as you want. We hope many of you will be able to participate!


Registration closes on Tuesday April 14th at 23:59 GMT+2!


Kind regards,
The EMLAR organization
