Modern Mathematics -

International Summer Schools for Students

The idea

The International Summer Schools Modern Mathematics are a unique opportunity for international top-level mathematicians of today and tomorrow to interact in a fruitful and substantial way. During 10 days, approximately 100 highly-potential young mathematicians from around the globe meet with international leading mathematicians. Beyond formal presentations, emphasis is laid on opportunity for informal interaction and communication, for instance during breaks, common meals, sports and games, excursions, and other activities. In addition to presentations, discussion and involvement are encouraged by active tutorials led by young researchers.
