Summer and Winter Schools of the IMPRS-CMS

Summer and Winter Schools of the IMPRS-CMS

The IMPRS-CMS summer/winter schools are a highlight of the curriculum. Every year the IMPRS-CMS offers one or two summer/winter schools on themes of a multidisciplinary nature. Internal and external speakers give tutorial lectures as well as overviews of the state-of-the-art in selected research areas.

These workshops are open for everyone, and participation is free of charge. The IMPRS-CMS students play an active role in planning, organizing, and running these schools. Most of the schools will be organized jointly with international partner institutions, like the University of British Columbia or the University of Tokyo.
