Beware that the school is open to a limited number of 53 participants, due to the occupancy limit of the lecture room.

The school is mostly directed towards PhD students or young researchers; however no restriction of any kind based on status, nationality or organization applies and everyone is free to register. If applications outnumber the occupancy limit, the scientific committee will do a selection among applications, based on the motivation letter and the scientific abstract.
