Attendees List

The column "Sponsoring needed?" is to know if you need sponsoring or if you pay the travel/stay by yourself.

Please keep in mind that food and drinks are not sponsored. Switzerland is rather expensive in that regard but we have already found a way to lower the costs. A cooking plan will follow, so please be precise on your food habits (especially important for vegans/vegetarians or people with food allergies).
