For each school a scientific organizing committee is allocated, consisting of members of one of the participating institues.

School format:

The IMPRS Summer School had three major components:

(1) Lectures are presented by leading experts in their fields.

(2) Hands-on computer exercises were prepared for selected topics.

(3) A few presentations on specific scientific applications were given by scientists from astronomical research institutes in Heidelberg.

In addition, a social program was organized, intended to provide a pleasent and relaxed atmosphere for fruitful scientific discussions between all participants and the lectures.
