The Summer School will take place from August 30. - September 4. 2015 at Wolffhotel in the Vulkaneiffel southwest of Bonn.

The typical participant will be a graduate student or postdoc and not necessarily an expert on the topic, but interested in jointly learning the subject.

Participants will be required to prepare a 2 x 50min lecture on some topic in advance, and submit a 4-6 page summary of their topic prior to the summer school, at the latest by August 20. 2015. A brief outline of the area covered as well as the topics are listed here.

The Summer School is funded by the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics.

Sunday August 30. will be the arrival day. From Monday to Friday the participants will give the lectures that they have prepared in advance. Departure will be after lunch on Friday September 4.


Space is limited to 18 participants.

The Hausdorff Center funds provide for accommodation. A contribution towards travelling expenses is be available upon request.

If you would like to participate, please send an informal email to by April 15. 2015. [Update: As of April 9 we have more applicants than we can accept. Further applications until April 15 are encouraged only from those on whose behalf we have already received a signal of interest or from Master students from Bonn, for whom we have reserved 3 spots that are only partially filled.] Please describe your professional status (graduate student, postdoc, etc) your area of research and your motivations for participating in the summer school.

Please also indicate your preference for a topic on which to prepare a lecture. The organizers are happy to answer questions on the assigned topics anytime.

Students from Bonn may take credit for a seminar S4B2.
