Description
The School provides early stage researchers with interactive experiences of hands-on research involving table-top experiments with computer data acquisition and modeling.  Participants will also take part in professional development of improved scientific communication in English.
 
An intensive programme of laboratory experiments, mathematical modeling, and lectures give participants immersive experiences with complex systems in the physical and life sciences.  Additionally, participants will present their own research in talks and posters with extensive faculty feedback to enhance the presentation quality.  The faculty are eminent scientists who have conducted frontier table-top research published in leading international scientific journals.
