The Summer School will take place from June 24. - June 29. 2012 at Catalina Canyon Resort on Catalina Island, California, one hour by boat South-West of Los Angeles.
The typical participant will be a graduate student or postdoc and not necessarily an expert on the topic, but interested in jointly learning the subject.
Participants will be required to prepare a 2 x 50min lecture on some topic in advance, and submit a 4-6 page summary of their topic prior to the summer school, at the latest by June 15. 2010. A brief outline of the area covered as well as the topics are listed here.
The Summer School is one of a series of Summer Schools funded by NSF grants.
Sunday June 24. will be the arrival day. From Monday to Friday the participants will give the lectures that they have prepared in advance. Departure will be after lunch on Friday June 29.
Space is limited to 12 participants.
The NSF grants provide funding for accommodation. A contribution towards travelling expenses may be available upon request.
If you would like to participate, please send an informal email to email@example.com by March 01. 2012. As of Feb 27, the waitlist has become so long that we will not be able to accommodate new applications. Please describe your professional status (graduate student, postdoc, etc) your area of research and your motivations for participating in the summer school.
Please also indicate your preference for a topic on which to prepare a lecture. The organizers are happy to answer questions on the assigned topics anytime.
