Scientific Registration is mandatory for all participants to NOW 2022. Deadline: 30 June
Participants with accepted registration will receive further information about room reservation and fee payment through a dedicated portal provided by a Meetings and Event Agency.

The NOW 2022 Workshop will be held during the week 4-11 September at the "Ostuni Rosa Marina Resort". The venue is located on the seaside of Ostuni (province of Brindisi in Apulia, Italy) at walking distance (~300 m) from the private Resort beach.
Booking of rooms in the Resort (check-in/check-out dates, plus accompanying persons if any) will be taken care by a dedicated Meetings and Events Agency. Please notice that, at least two months before the start of the Workshop, the Agency will ask your credit card information for booking confirmation via their dedicated portal. See below for the cancellation policy. Further detailed information will be provided in June. Please do not contact the Resort, since only the Agency will be authorized to book rooms for NOW 2022 participants.
We strongly recommend participation for the whole 1-week Workshop period, i.e., arrival on Sept. 4 (Sunday) and departure on Sept. 11 (Sunday). Rooms will be available to NOW 2022 participants from 5.00 pm (Sept. 4) to 10.00 am (Sept. 11). Shorter stays are subject to higher room rates, as detailed below.
