NORBIS Summer School

Call for proposals to host the next NORBIS summer school!

We now invite you to host the next NORBIS summer school, which should take place during June or August 2018 and have duration on the order of one week. The summer school should target PhD students and topics within the scope of NORBIS. We also encourage proposals  with a wider scope, for example targeting students in neighbouring fields, such as mathematics, statistics, computer sciences, medicine, and biology. The summer school may for example give a contemporary overview of novel methodologies, offer expert training within a specialised topic, offer a wider angle of a greater area, or maybe something completely different, limited by your imagination. This is an excellent opportunity to gather national and/or international experts to inspire and give state of the art lectures to our highly engaged PhD students, with full financial and administrative support from NORBIS.

Please fill in this form, and send your proposal to contact-norbis@uib.no by 15th January 2018. The NORBIS leadership and board will assess the proposals and the coordinator of the selected proposal, if any, will be contacted by February 2018.
