Modern Computational Science - Summer School


The Summer School is open to applicants both from university and from industry. All applicants have to complete the registration form (see below), which includes a questionnaire about their previous knowledge and fields of interest. If you are from outside university, please contact the organizers for the fee and further details. University students have three registration options:

  1. Application for a grant. Since the number of grants is limited, you are asked to write an application letter stating why you are interested in attending the School, and to enclose additional material (certificates, transcript of records, and at least one letter of recommendation). The successful candidates will have to pay a small fee of 100 EUR which includes accommodation, breakfast, dinner (buffet), bus pass for public transit, and course material. Those that could not obtain the grant are given the opportunity to pay either the reduced or full fee (see below), provided there are still places available at that time.
    Grants are mainly intended for Bachelor, Master and Diploma students, who usually do not have other means of funding. Ph.D. students may apply as well, but will only receive a grant if there are not enough qualified applicants from the former groups.

    A number of special grants is available for students from the University of Oldenburg (please indicate grant + Uni Oldenburg in the registration formular, Item 3), if you want to apply for such a grant. Applicants have to supply the same material as all other students except for the recommendation letter, which is optional. Recipients of these grants, which include dinner (buffet) and course material but no accommodation and bus pass, do not have to pay any fee.
  2. Immediate registration by paying a reduced fee of 250 EUR, which includes dinner (buffet), bus pass for public transit, and course material. In that case, you will have to take care of accommodation yourself. Participation is only guaranteed until places are filled.
  3. Immediate registration by paying the full fee of 650 EUR, which includes accommodation, breakfast, dinner (buffet), bus pass for public transit, and course material. Participation is only guaranteed until places are filled.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide any travel grants. The accommodation for participants paying the full fee will be in a 3-star hotel.

Accommodation includes 12 nights (first night is from Sunday, August 8 to Monday, August 9). Note that we cannot pay additional nights for you. If you arrive before Sunday, August 8, or want to stay longer than Friday, August 20, you have to make your own arrangements.
