We understand that doctoral candidates are human beings, and don’t always have a choice in last-minute obligations. We however need you to tell us as soon as you realize you won’t be able to attend. This is in order to see if we can give the place for someone on the waiting list. In most circumstances, you won’t be penalized. We do however reserve the right to bar anyone who frequently cancels at the last minute, and we will restrict registration for anyone who is absent from a workshop without letting us or the trainer know! Remember that the University of Lausanne has made these workshops available free of charge to you, as one of its doctoral candidates and postdocs, and significant resources in time, thought and funds go into organizing such small-group intensive training. We ask in return that you do your utmost to keep the day free, act professionally, and attend as expected.
