Clara Saraceno, and Prof. Enrica Bordignon, both RESOLV Professors at the Ruhr University Bochum who were previously at ETH Zürich.


Abstracts of the presentations can be found here: Presentation Abstracts. We will make a printed contents list (page 1) available at the registration desk.

The poster abstracts can be downloaded here: Poster Abstracts. The list of abstracts will be available at the registration desk. Posters 1-25 are in room FIRST, downstairs, next to room Jungfrau; posters 26-77 are in room EIGER, upstairs.

Bussalp evening event
The evening event is on January 15, 18:00 from the Sunstar Hotel. Because of the high avalanche risk, the busses will take us to Lochsteinen (1'424 m), where we get the sledges. If you need a head torch, you can buy one here.

From Lochsteinen, we will sledge down to Grindelwald. From there, we will walk down to the Hotelfor  a buffet dinner at the Sunstar Hotel.
