- The EWFC is a small informal conference. Participants arrive on Sunday evening of the 13th of January and depart on the morning of Thursday the 17th of January. Sessions take place Monday-Wednesday. The programme allows for eight papers with discussants. Presentations last 45 minutes, with 15 minutes for the discussant and 15 minutes for general discussion. There is an early morning session and a late afternoon session. In addition, there is an informal session where discussants are given the opportunity for a brief presentation of their research.
- The conference programmes from previous years can be viewed at the conference website.
- The conference will take place at the Schweizerhof Flims, Romantik Hotel, Switzerland. This is a small traditional hotel with excellent conference facilities. Space availability limits the size of the conference to 25 participants. Most participants ski, and the conference schedule allows for this.
- The hotel is easily accessible. Trains run every hour from Zurich airport with a transit time of just over two hours. There are also good links to the rail networks of Germany, Italy and other countries.
- Participants cover their own expenses (we may be able to offer partial assistance to a few participants who do not have access to research funding).
