Procedures 2020:
Covid-19 restrictions require that we only meet online using the university’s “Big blue button” system. Part 1 will be held on the first course day, during which we will all meet virtually for the whole day. This will be followed by four days, during each of which three students will participate in working to improve their individual manuscripts for at least two hours each. Which day each participant will take part will be determined in advance in a preparatory online meeting. Any other participants can listen in anytime.

For every participant the amount of mandatory working hours (online) will amount to min. 16 hours + preparation (offline).
