Registration instructions

The school is primarily intended for doctoral students and recent postdocs in any field of research in Astronomy. Those interested in attending the Winter School should register using the online form below. Once registered, please log in to your personal area and introduce your Curriculum Vitae and contributed poster information. In addition, we request a letter of reference from your thesis advisor (or Head of Department) by email to the Winter School Secretariat. These should reach the IAC before June 15th. Selected candidates will be informed by July 1st.

Please note that selection will be based on the candidates application (CV, poster and letters of recommendation), and not on the date of their registration.

The registration fee is Euro 1300.-, which covers the Conference Fee, half-board accommodation for thirteen days (from Sunday 13th to Saturday 26th, on the basis of shared rooms), all excursions and social activities including visits to the observatories on La Palma and Tenerife, and a copy of the proceedings.

A limited number of grants may be provided by the organization to partially cover registration costs. Those applicants requiring partial support to attend the School may fill in the corresponding form in the personal area once registered.

Hotel bookings are handled directly by the organization. Those participants wanting to share a room with a specific person should indicate it by email to
