Application

The School will be open to 50 qualified and selected students.

Registration fee: 500 euro, VAT 22% included.
The fee covers all lectures; course material; wi-fi connections; lunches and coffee breaks; social dinner.

HOW TO APPLY: Prospective participants have to fill out and submit the form below, and upload a 1-page letter (pdf) organized as follows:

  • name, department/university, current position (PhD student, postdoc, other)
  • educational background
  • research activity and interests
  • motivations for participating in the school

Please note that any page after the first one will be automatically deleted.

PREREQUISITES: Basic notions and metrics on complex networks are required to be able to follow the entire course.

SELECTION CRITERIA: In addition to applicant quality, the Organizing Committee will consider a number of features including: the coherence of the motivation with the aim and scope of the school, the potential benefit for the student’s research, the timeliness for the development of the student’s career. Preference will be given to applicants not participating in the previous edition (2019) of the school.

The school is especially addressed to doctoral students and young postdoctoral scholars. A very limited number of senior students (e.g., assistant/associate/full professors) can be admitted, if they provide strong and convincing motivation in their application letter.

SHORT TALKS: Participants who intend to give a short talk (4 minutes) on Tuesday, May 19, afternoon, should declare it in the application form (see below) and provide a title and a list of keywords (from 3 to 5). As there will be room for no more than 25-30 talks, in case of a larger number of proposals the Organizing Committee will select on the basis of the potential interest to the audience, the coherence with the aim and scope of the school, and the diversification of topics.
