Modern Mathematics -
International Summer School for Students
The International Summer School for Students is an
introduction to top-level mathematical research topics for highly
selected international students at the age of transition between
high school and university. Presentations and mini-courses will be
given by international leading university mathematicians.
The summer school combines the best features from several
successful international activities for talented students, such as
the Russian-language summer school "Sovremennaya Matematika"
(Contemporary mathematics) in Dubna near Moscow, the MASS research
semesters program at Penn State University/USA, and the 50th
anniversary celebration of the International Mathematical Olympiad
(IMO 2009) in Bremen/Germany. Key organizers of all these
activities are among the initiators of our school.
The success of the previous summer schools in Bremen (2011, 2013, and 2015) and Lyon (2012 and
2014) confirm that such
projects can be successfull at the European level. As in the
previous years, we hope that our school will help foster
connections among the international participants as well as develop
the attractiveness of the European Research Area at the
international level, and we hope that it will encourage
international students to study in Europe and in particular in the
We are very happy that some of the most prominent and exciting
international research mathematicians have agreed to joining the
Scientific Committee and coming to Bremen as lecturers.
The scientific age of the contestants should be so that they are
in their last years of high school, or in their first two years of
university. Of course this means different things, in terms of
preparation, for different countries. In particular, participants
should have working knowledge in basic calculus, and they should
not yet have specialized into any particular area of
We are committed to admitting talented students, both female and
male, with diverse backgrounds, and from many different countries.
