Practical Information


The session will take place at Les Houches (near Chamonix). Lectures will start on Tuesday, July 4th at 9.00 am and will end on Thursday (evening), July 27th 2017. Please note that you  should not arrive before  14:00 hours on Monday, July 3rd in the afternoon and that you should  leave the Les Houches campus on Friday, July 28th. Various shuttle-buses  offer  transport between  Geneva airport and the school site; see the webpage "getting to Les Houches" for details and suggestions.

The session has been organized as a whole. Participants are expected to stay for the entire school and attend all the courses. Lectures will be given in English. We  hope to make the lecturers notes  available to the students  during the school. There are no "discussion sessions" in the timetable, but lecturers may propose problems.

The total registration fee including housing and meals (except for drinks) is 1500 €,  payable   at the secretariat upon arrival. Credit cards are accepted. If your institution wishes to pay in advance, please contact the secretariat.

The   afternoon sessions  on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th will be devoted to   two-minute presentations by all of the participants (you are allowed at most 2 slides; if you want slides, please transmit the pdf to Sacha before 15h the day you speak).  We follow alphabetic order in last names, starting   Tuesday at 17h  from K.

There  also will be a poster session for participants who bring posters.  Informal student presentations can be organised at any time during the afternoon break or the evenings.


All participants will be housed in the School campus. Meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) will be served at the School restaurant.
