Students presentations: In order to maximize interaction among students, they are invited to briefly present their research work with a viewpoint based on the school topics. For this purpose a 30-min slot is reserved everyday in the timetable right before the first morning lecture.

The list of presenters and the school details will be updated. Check back soon!
