Why do we all love ESSLLI? Because courses are great, and they are taught by fantastic lecturers. Because it is an opportunity to meet people from all over the world that share our interests. Because we get to meet our “heroes”, the authors of that book or paper that sparkled our love on the subject we are now learning!
What a pity that ESSLLI 2021 is going to be held virtually ☹: no interaction, no chance to meet the people who shaped the field, no coffee with friends discussing crazy great ideas... No, no, no, this can't be!!! The ESSLLI community is strong and enthusiastic, and we are going to find a way to do all this.
Are you attending ESSLLI 2021? Then think of a person you would really like to meet at ESSLLI, your research hero or heroine. The person who has influenced you most, who is your role model, who you think is brilliant, who could know the answer to the research question that does not let you sleep at night.
Fill in this form with info about you and your heroes, and we will invite them to ESSLLI! Virtually, of course, but we are sure it would be a wonderful experience, nevertheless. We cannot promise that we will succeed in making your dream come true, but we will surely do our best.
The form will be closed on the 30th of June at 12:00 CEST. Priority will be given to participants who have registered to ESSLLI by then.
