Background Information

This new initiative by the ECGI has been developed to provide a forum for the presentation of new research by ECGI Research members. The first series of seminars started with two events in November 2013 and January 2014.  Further events will take place at a later date once the first two have been fully evaluated.

These seminars come in two different forms. Some are aimed at academics and policy-makers and others at academics alone, Each seminar lasts for a whole day and takes place at the Royal Academy of Belgium in Brussels (see Directions).

Online Registration
Invitations to attend each event are extended by the Organising Committee and attendance is by invitation only. Online registration (see menu above) is open to invited delegates for each separate seminar. As the room in which these seminars are being held can accommodate limited numbers, attendance is on a first come first served basis. When the limit is reached, a small number will be allowed to put their names on a waiting list. Thereafter, this online registration facility will be closed. ECGI members and other invited guests are asked to inform Christine Miller on if having registered, they are, for whatever reason, not able to attend on the day. The person at the top of waiting list will then be invited to take the vacated slot.

Travel and Accommodation
Delegates should make their own arrangements and costs will not be covered by the ECGI. Separate arrangements exist for Presenters and Commentators who will be notified individually.
