IMPORTANT NOTICE for all school lecturers and attendees:
We have been informed that someone tried to contact school speakers and attendees offering travel arrangements (hotel and flight booking) on behalf of the school secretariat, asking for credit card details in order to proceed.
THIS IS A FRAUD: these agencies are by no means authorized by the school.
In case of doubt do not hesitate to contact the school secretariat
