How to propose 2014 Schools and Activities
The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research will have resources to support 2014 activities held at ICTP-SAIFR on the IFT-UNESP campus in São Paulo. These 2014 activities are expected to include several two-week schools for PhD students similar to the São Paulo International Schools on Theoretical Physics organized in 2012 and 2013, as well as a few short topical workshops for advanced researchers.
The two-week schools typically have 50-60 PhD students and 4-5 lecturers with financing of local and travel expenses for 4 lecturers and 25 students (10 from other cities in Brazil, 10 from other countries in South America, and 5 from other continents). The schools are expected to have only 2 or 3 lectures per day, and time for homework exercises and discussion. The short topical workshops typically have 20 advanced researchers for 3-4 days, and local expenses are paid for the researchers.
Proposals of 2014 activities will be discussed by the Scientific Council in February 2013, so potential organizers are encouraged to submit proposals before January 28, 2013 using the following online application form. Please email any questions on activity proposals to email@example.com
