Due to the developing COVID-19 situation, we have decided to postpone the summer school. We will announce the new date early in 2021. Applications that were received already will still be evaluated and there will be another round of accepting applications after the new date has been announced. Please check back regularly for updates. Thanks for your patience and stay healthy!

Please Note: You MUST know your own institution's/country's policy on travel when applying. We cannot help you to determine whether you are allowed to attend the school due to remaining COVID-19 restrictions.
