Registration fee

The registration fee for the selected participants is 100 EUR/460 PLN for academia and 300 EUR/1380 PLN for industry. This fully covers the costs of accommodation and board during the school.
We try to make our events accessible and affordable for all, and keep the registration fees to a minimum. However, we understand that in some circumstances covering the costs of participation in our event can still be challenging. We do not want the money to be a limiting factor in anyone’s participation, so we will provide financial support for a number of selected participants, primarily based on their socio-economic status. We can offer two types of support:

  • Travel grant to help you cover the cost of your travel to the event's venue.
  • Fee discount or waiver directed to those participants who cannot get the fee covered by their institutions.
Both types of support will be preferentially grated to participants from academia (students, PhD candidates and faculty stuff), but application from industry will be considered, too.
If you wish to be considered for travel grant, fee discount/waiver or both, make sure to fill the Bursary section of the application form, explaining your situation. We will try our best to help you.

Registration fee waiver for Ukrainian participants

NGSchool's mission is to promote and support science. We want to help by doing what we do best: supporting scientists. With this in mind, we are offering a fee waiver for accepted applicants from Ukraine or Ukrainians who were displaced as an effect of Russian aggression. Additionally, as in previous years, we will support participants with travel grants. Please mention your situation in the Bursary section of the registration form.

For participants applying from Russian institutions

NGSchool condemns the aggression against Ukraine in the strongest possible terms and stands in solidarity with our colleagues in Ukraine. Since Russian Universities publicly supported the war we are unable to accept participants affiliated with those institutions. However, we note that many Russian academics, at great personal peril, have publicly criticized this invasion. We would like to support all those harmed by Putin's regime and therefore extend our invitation to Russian academics and students provided they will come as individuals, without affiliation. We will not be able to accept payments for registration fees from Russian universities and companies and will not be able to provide receipts to those organizations.
