Master Classes and Short Courses

July 11, 2016

Selection of the students and young scientists will be based on an email application. To apply for a Master Class or a Short Course, the applicant should send an email to specifying which Short Course or Master Class he/she is interested in. The applicant should also explain in 1–2 paragraphs how participation in the Master Class will benefit his/her research. We also require a short CV (up to two pages), appended to the email application. If appropriate, we also recommend that the applicant mentions two classes he/she would be interested in attending, listed in order of preference.

The master classes will be held on July 11, the day before the formal opening of the conference. Applications for the Master Classes will be accepted from March 1, 2016, to April 15, 2016. The participants will be presented with a certificate signed by the Masters. A dinner will be provided for Master Class participants on Monday evening. There is no fee to attend the class, but we expect the participants will register for the conference.

Deadline for Master Class Registration: April 15, 2016
