Please find some important details regarding the conference below.
What is the YRM of ETSF?
Here is a brief explanation for the new members of ETSF (and a little reminder for the older ones): the YRM of ETSF is an annual meeting aimed at young researchers in the field of condensed matter. The only condition to participate is not to have a permanent position at the moment of the conference. You can take a look at the conference programme here:

The conference will be held mainly in person as one of the main aims of the YRM is to offer participants the opportunity to network with young colleagues from different institutions.
For this reason, the organizers strongly encourage applicants to attend the conference in person if possible. Nevertheless, we understand that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some participants may not feel comfortable attending in person and for this reason, we will also provide the opportunity to attend the conference online.
More information about traveling to Italy can be found here:

Who can contribute a talk?
All participants are welcome to contribute to the conference! Of course, depending on the number of participants, we cannot ensure that every participant will be able to give a talk.
Nonetheless, we strongly encourage you to submit your abstracts during registration. A poster session will also be held during the conference.When is the deadline?
The deadline for registration is July 19th. We strongly recommend that you register as soon as possible. Please also bear in mind that the beginning of September is considered mid-high season in Cagliari, so buying your flight tickets in advance may save you a considerable sum. You can register for the conference here:

How much is the registration fee?
Since the YRM is an event dedicated to non-permanent researchers who usually have limited financial resources, one of our primary concerns has been to keep the conference fees as low as possible. There are three registration options:
● Option 1: 180€ (including accommodation from Sep 6th to 10th in a shared room,lunch, social dinner and coffee breaks)
● Option 2: 220€ (including accommodation from Sep 6th to 10th in a single room,
lunch, social dinner and coffee breaks) *** LIMITED PLACES ***
● Option 3: 120€ (including lunch, social dinner and coffee breaks)

Hope to see you soon in Cagliari!
