We want to invite you, to perceive this conference to be a celebration of the source of all science: curiosity. You are invited to come with open eyes, open ears and above all open minds towards exciting ideas created by all the winning teams from all over Europe. We challenge you to use this experience to meet other bright students of Europe, to connect with each other at and to stay in touch after the conference.

In case your journey plans require you to book an additional third night, we would ask you to download this form and send it to the hotel directly. Please be aware that we cannot spent any budget on the third night, so that you do have to pay an additional third night for yourself.


We prepared a registration form, which needs to be filled out only once by your national Chain Reaction Team. We sent it to the project coordinator by mail on the 19.3.2015 - in case you need it again feel free to download it here. Please open it with the free Adobe Reader on a computer with a standing internet connection. After filling it out - you do not need to send the document itself to us but simply click the "Submit" button on the bottom right of the document - the data will then be transmitted to our server via internet.


Here you find our current schedule for the international conference (this draft programme is still subject to alterations and NOT finalised). Once this plan is finalised you will receive a copy via your coordinator or via download from this page.



As you will all be presenting posters, we prepared a little Poster Factsheet for this conference that gives you all the important information you need to know in order to present your poster! You can download it here.



We are proud to host you and your team as the scientific representatives of your country and excited to hear your presentation. We kindly ask you to adapt your presentation, so that it will take not longer than 12 minutes. Afterwards there will be 3 minutes time for one or two additional questions, before the next group will present (12+3 format). We will prepare our computers, to be able to present MS Powerpoint, Impress (Libre/Open Office), or Prezi presentations. In case you need our computers to show different formats and require certain materials or setups for your presentation, do not hesitate to contact us at Because it is not uncommon that you might want to apply last minute changes to your presentation, we suggest that you give us your presentation on your day of arrival on an USB stick. Of course you can also send us your presentation via email to as a security measure.


As we want to publish a conference booklet, we would like you to sent us an abstract. An abstract is a short scientific summary of your work. In case you feel insecure on how to write an abstract, please ask your teacher or your national chain reaction team. The abstract must not be longer than 80 words and be written in English language. Please note that abstracts must be sent to us as soon as possible but at the latest on 21st of April 2015. All abstracts coming in later will not be printed in the conference booklet.
