Stipends: We have a very limited number of stipends that cover the registration fee only. When filling the form, please indicate under motivation if: (1) you have funding, (2) you can only come with a stipend, or (3) you would consider coming without a stipend. The stipends will be announced on June 16th after we have received all “expressions of interest”. Please note that we would like to give the stipends to attendees who are more in need of financial support. If you need a stipend, please mention this on the motivation form by 15 June 2018. It would be good to have a statement about your funding situation and ideally it would be also good to have a brief statement from your advisor. Please ask your advisor to send it to the school organizers. If your participation is dependant on whether or not you receive a stipend, feel free to register after the stipend notification.
Location: The school will be held at the University Residential Center in the small picturesque town of Bertinoro which provides an ideal environment for interaction and fostering collaborations. Accommodation in the form of shared and single-occupancy rooms is offered to the participants. Meals are also provided.
