The workshops will be planned in three parallel tracks so that low number of participants will attend the same workshop. A smaller group of participants makes easier for the workshop tutors to go in details and spend more time individually with each participant.
Due to their topics, some workshops requires to be planned in two sessions following each other, i.e. such a longer workshop will take place in two sessions in sequence with a break in between.
The individual programme of each participant will be provided at the first day of Summer University together with a short introduction and description of each workshop.
