Based on the above information, the Scientific Organizing Committee will select 25-30 applicants each year.
To obtain a Certificate of Participation the selected students should attend all lectures and exercise sessions of the School (see Preliminary Program). Students who also undertake to do a project on a special topic belonging to any one of the 4 courses, will have their project graded by one of the instructors and depending on their performance may receive a Certificate of Participation with Distinction.

All interested students are invited to submit their application at the latest by May 15, 2012, following the instructions posted on the School’s website. They will be informed about the decision of the Scientific Organizing Committee regarding their acceptance by the end of May 2012.

The selected students will be asked to download and read preparatory course material provided by the instructors and placed on the School’s website by the end of June 2012. In this way, the students will be better prepared to follow the lectures and exercise sessions of the School.
