After you have registered you should get a "Thank you" site returned, which indicates that the registration has gone through. If this does not happen or if you are uncertain of your registration, please contact workshop coordinator Angelica Lindlöf: angelica.lindlof@his.se.

We will also send out a confirmation email to all registered participants. If you do not recieve such an email by Friday the 18th, please contact workshop coordinator immediately, since this could mean that your registration was not completed.
