Following a by-now good tradition, the FIDE 2021 Congress in the Netherlands will feature a Young FIDE Seminar (previously the PhD-Seminar). This seminar will take place on 12 May 2021, the first day of the FIDE 2021 Congress, and it is hosted by Leiden University. During the Young FIDE Seminar young researchers and practitioners can share their own contributions on one of the three FIDE main topics. Attendance during the seminar is open to all young EU scholars (researchers and graduate students) and practitioners, independent of participation in the main FIDE 2021 Congress. The Young FIDE Seminar will be opened by Professor Sacha Prechal, Judge at the Court of Justice of the European Union. Subsequently, selected papers on the FIDE topics will be presented by the authors and discussed by three panels during a plenary session. We are looking forward to an intense and constructive exchange of arguments and ideas during the Young FIDE Seminar. There is a maximum number of 70 participants.

Attendance of the Young FIDE Seminar is free of charge (this includes lunch). For participants of this seminar who wish to attend the FIDE 2021 Congress there is a reduced fee of 350 EUR (early registration) or 400 EUR (late registration) available. Please note, however, participation during the Young FIDE Seminar does not require participation during the main FIDE Congress.
