Request for participation (registration) is expected to open during February 2024.

The number of attendees will be limited to 100 onsite and about 100 online, for practical purposes and also with a view to promote a good interaction with the lecturers. Due to the total number of requests for participation usually exceeding these numbers, registration proceeds in two stages. First a call for requests for participation is launched, expressing wishes for either onsite or remote participation. Requests need to be supported by a motivation letter and a letter from an advisor or recommending person. Potential participants are then selected among the requests, also proposing online participation for some of those requesting onsite participation. In a second stage only those applicants selected are invited to register.

Our goal is to keep the registration fees to a moderate level based on efforts to keep costs low, and thanks to supporting institutions. It should be around 800€ all inclusive (educational, accommodation, catering for breakfast and lunch, social activities), the exact amount to be mentioned at the time of registration for those invited to participate (TBA). In very rare and well motivated cases scholarships may be granted to partly or fully waive these fees, when cost of registration would clearly prevent attendance. In all cases the attendees must cover the cost for their travel to the school site.

The request for participation required three steps:

  2. If you are an undergraduate student, a PhD student or a post-doc, ask your adviser to prepare a recommendation Letter.
  3. Fill-in the web form to reques participation. You are requested to upload your motivation Letter, and possibly a recommendation Letter. The latter may also be sent directly by the adviser to the School office.

When this is done, you should not proceed to payment of the fees, but instead, wait for the selection process to take place and be informed of the outcome.
