The target audience of the school is advanced undergraduate (BSc) and graduate (MSc & PhD) students, post-doctoral researchers, and academic and industrial researchers and developers. The school will be open to about 100 qualified, motivated and pre-selected candidates.
Participants will be selected according to the order of application, the quality of the submitted request and the institution of provenance to ensure a balanced group of people. Graduate students will have to send a copy of their student card at registration time once they have been accepted to the school.
The school fee is 550 Euros. The fee includes all courses, hand-out material, coffee/tea breaks, social events and room/board. The EDBT Association will provide a limited number of grants covering school fee only or school fee and accommodation. Those interested on school fellowships must give arguments in their motivation letter.
Bursaries will be awarded based upon the background and the scientific performance of the applicants. The economic development level of applicant institutions will also be considered.
Interested participants can apply by providing, as a single PDF file, a CV and a one-page description of their research and motivation at the application site. Note that the deadline for applications is 30 May 2015.
