Seminars and Activities

[Mar 16-27] [Mar 30-Apr 10] [Apr 13-24] [Apr 27-May 8] [May 11-15] [May 18-29] [Jun 1-12]


As a tradition of INT programs, there will be one seminar and occasionally two each day. The seminars will be informal with plenty of time devoted to discussions. Afternoons will be open for discussions for interested groups. We will choose a coordinator for the discussions of each session. After consultation with the coordinators, we will list the guidelines of the discussion and possible names of the interested people who might want to get a little prepared for some short presentation on the topics. All the schedules here are tentative and might change during the program.
