Oral talks will be 20 minutes long + 10 minutes for discussion and in English. You can submit your abstract in any Germanic variety you like, but please also provide an English translation for practical purposes. We encourage the use of languages than English and/or German for the posters. However, if you would like to present a poster in a different language, minority language or dialect, we kindly ask that an English translation of your poster be provided as a handout to ensure intelligibility.
