Leipzig. The workshops will be provided by Przemyslaw Biecek, a data

P.S. Abstracts are not required for registration. In case you don’t know, the Bialowieza Forest lies at the border to Belarus and is one of Europe’s last primaeval forests. It is still a UNESCO world heritage site, but currently threatened by a logging campaign. The conference venue is the WEJMUTKA Bialowieza Biodiversity Academy, which lies in the centre of the national park.
