Linz is the European Capital of Culture for the year 2009. The accommodations in town are limited. Unfortunately for this reason we will be able to host a limited number of external participants. We recommend you to take the following actions as soon as possible:

  • Before sending your inscription we request you to check the availability of an accommodation at the local hotel list and to reserve a room as soon as possible;
  • The deadline for the inscription to the school is June 30, 2009. The inscription request should be submitted with an informal email to Andreas Langer (; your email should be entitled "Inscription to the Summer School on sparsity";
  • Ph.D. students and early stage researchers are invited to present together with their inscription a request of financial support to cover the local expenses in case it is needed; we will provide such a support in terms of a refunding for a limited number of participants, possibly for all; this means that participants have to pay in advance the cost of accommodation and then we will be able to refund them.
