2 months to go12:59 - 21.06.2010

We are very excited about the upcoming event! Everything goes like clockwork.

At the moment we are preparing a contest, called "The Can Effect", for which you are invited to develop a machine based on a physical effect. The task is to open a can in an uncommon and innovative way. If you want to enter the competition you will have to bring your prefabricated device to the event or built it here in Graz (you will have to bring your own equipment).

Another thing we want to remind you of, is the deadline (June, 30th) for submitting an abstract for a poster and/or a lecture. Up to this date, it is also possible to modify existing presentations. We will review all abstracts in July and we will then notify you about the acceptance as soon as possible.

We're happy to seeing you soon!

Updates concerning Waiting List20:30 - 18.03.2010

On request of IAPS, we had to shuffle the waiting list, in order to avoid greater imbalances concerning the participating countries' distribution. Those who have not been accepted will soon be informed about their position on the waiting list.

We kindly ask those who have been accepted but have not been able to choose an excursion until now to stay patient for a while, as we will soon will enable them to select an excursion. Of course, all of you will be informed via e-mail about it, however, our system is not quite ready for this challenge yet - so stay tuned!
