When will I find out whether I am selected for the conference?
You will receive an e-mail ca. 5-10 days after the Skype interviews. You will still have enough time to prepare for the discussions and read the required materials.

The conference fee covers accommodation, meals, a reader that contains the course materials and some free time activity. Accommodation will be provided in Rajk László College in rooms of 4-5 people. The conference will be taking place in various locations in the city. The cost of travel to the location of the concference is not covered by the application fee.
What about the cost of living in Budapest?
Local transportation: Your local transport pass is covered in the application fee.
Meals and food: Three meals per day are covered by the application fee.
Having fun: There might be a slight difference between the Central European countries, but the price level is nearly the same in the region. A beer is around 450 HUF (1.5 EUR) and club or concert tickets are usually in the 1000-3000 HUF range (3-10 EUR).
When will I have time to see the lovely city of Budapest?
To show you the best places of Budapest during the four days of the conference , we will organize events in the city, such as visiting the Lukács bath, a sightseeing tour and a pub crawl. We can also provide you accommodation in the College for a humble fee if you want to arrive 2-3 days earlier, or stay some days longer to see the city. However, the four-day-program of the conference is very scarce, and we kindly ask you to be punctual and attend all the professional programs.
