Program 2020 – canceled due to the pandemic
*** After careful monitoring of the dynamics of the Cvoid-19 pandemic and the unprecedented challenges that we all are experiencing, we have decided with a heavy heart to cancel our 2020 summer school. Protecting the health of all people involvedand assuring the slowest possible spread of the virus is our first priority, and has led to this decision. Thank you for understanding in this situation. We are already planning our 2021 Summer School and hope to see you then. For updates, please check our website regularly**
*** Note: we are currently planning the Summer School 2021 as on-site event in Albufeira, Portugal. However, due to the continuing uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will also be prepared to offer a reduced program in a virtual format. ***
