Special Topic Schools are intensive oneweek seminars that provide earlycareer researchers at all stages with the opportunity to learn about new developments and fundamentally novel methods in a specific area of mathematics. They feature lectures on contemporary, cuttingedge topics given by leading experts in their fields, complemented by open discussions and poster sessions. We invite applications to our schools from interested earlycareer researchers worldwide.
