There has been an overwhelming response to the Summer School. However, since we have very limited seats, we have decided to have a rerun during September 6 - 10, 2022. Inspite of this, we could not accommodate many deserving applications. We plan to run additional progrmas in the future and hope we can accommodate you at that time.
