    do we have a rough idea when registration may be opened up? don’t wanna miss this one.

    will there be room for ppl who didn’t register for the previous Chile trip?

    Hi Jay,
    It’s likely to be like that:
    – late Dec or early Jan: PATA registration with short abstract submission
    – late February or early Mar: final registration and payment, extended abstract submission

    I guess field trip registration will start from scratch.

    Hi Christoff – please put me on the 2024 PATA Days list or pass on, I’m a definite starter. I’ve left X-Twitter so I’m less likely to keep up with the play now

    I am a retired physicist from the University of Massachusetts US.
    I am not an expert in this subject, however, I would like to attend 2024 PATA.
    Is this possible?
    Thank you for answering.

    Dear Marguerite,
    I think they would welcome your attendance. Perhaps send an email to and ask them to be on the safe side.
    All the best

    Hey Christoph,
    I cannot find where to submit the short abstract, could you help me with that?
    Cheers, Magda

    Hi Magda,

    The new website isn’t active yet. Please expect an update by the organisers, soon.
