Modern Mathematics - International Summer School
Host and City
The 2017 International Summer School for Students takes place in
the Free Hanseatic City of
Bremen, a major industrial and cultural center in the
north-west of Germany with a history of 1,200 years. It is famous
for its Bremen Town
Musicians, its town hall, a UNESCO World Cultural
Heritage site, and its maritime traditions which are most
visible in the Vegesack
neighborhood close to the Jacobs University campus.
University, the host institution of the 2017 Summer School, is
an independent private university founded in 1999. The language on
campus is English. Jacobs University is committed to excellence in
teaching and research, interdisciplinarity, and an international
faculty and student body.
With undergraduate programs in Mathematics (offering specializations in
theoretical and applied directions of mathematics and minors in
adjacent subjects) and an integrated Masters/Doctoral degree program, Mathematics is a
strong pillar of academic life at Jacobs. Many of our alumni are
now pursuing successful careers at universities, in industry, in
consulting and other tasks across the world. In 2009, the Jacobs
campus was home to the 50th
International Mathematics Olympiad and biennially hosts the
International Summer School for Students.
Accommodation is provided in modern single rooms. Within five
minutes walk on our park-like campus, all lecture halls, the
library, small group study rooms, cafeterias, and recreation
facilities are in easy reach. Besides the formal program, the
Summer School aims at maximizing opportunities to meet, discuss,
work in small groups, or just relax.
