The general program for the Budapest meeting has been announced:
YAE Annual General Meeting
This year, we will hold our own AGM in Budapest on Sunday 3 and Monday 4 September 2017, and it is connected to the joint YAE/AE/ALLEA meeting. The AGM will include elections of the 2017/18 YAE Board and the Launch Party for YAE becoming a Charity.
So save the date and become part of history!

And the Royal Society (UK) has now made it mandatory in order to apply for grants: https://goo.gl/JdjWlp All the more reason to start using it.
