Location: The Summer School will be held at the Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse. Cargèse is a pleasant village of considerable charm and historic interest located 50 km north of Ajaccio, on the west coast of Corsica (France). The Institute is located 2 km south of the village.

Although our Cargese school has been confirmed, the program may need to be modified at the last minute. Your own participation may also be made impossible due to travel restrictions, place of residence, etc... We must adapt to this unique situation. Still, you are welcome to apply now and we will be happy to review your application. Unfortunately, we have to deal with these uncertainties.

Applications are closed.

Participants are expected to cover their own travel. The cost of the institute, including half board and registration fees, will be 1000 Euros. Some funding will be available upon specific request.
