This Intensive Programme is designed to provide educational and research experience for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students. The scientific program consists of six mini-courses, problem sessions, and projects with computer lab and theoretical components. Projects will be performed in teams with students from different countries to provide a first-hand international experience.
