Preparing your experiment (administrative)

Practical issues

Financial assistance

Formalities to carry on


Almost 40% of participant lists have to be manually modified after the initial declaration.

List modifications entail: changes to guest house bookings, reprogramming of entry badges, cancellation and re-organisation of travel arrangement, etc.

Whereas we understand that modifications to the participants lists may be unavoidable due to circumstances, changes to these lists (sometimes several times for a session) represents a significant and unsustainable work load for SOLEIL services, with some risks of errors, considering the increasing number of modifications requests.

Consequently, only a single reopening of participants list will be allowed.

Therefore, before participants list submission, we kindly ask the Main proposer or the BAG coordinator to check that all participants’ needs are met (arrival / departure dates, guest house, financial support).

We thank you in advance for your collaboration.
