How much will participation in the summer school cost?
There will be no registration fee. The generous sponsorship from at least SIAM and PIMS will also allow us to reimburse travel and housing costs for some of the participants. While it is our goal to refund expenses for as large a fraction of participants as we can, we cannot make guarantees at this point. Candidates are strongly encouraged to inquire whether travel support is available with their advisor, and indicate so in their cover letter. Funding decisions will be communicated in the notification letters of the successful candidates. More information on the cost of housing can be found under the Miscellaneous tab.
The email address above will be monitored for your messages. The deadline for applications is February 1st, 2011. Notifications will happen in late February or early March.
Applicants to the G2S3 summer school may also be interested in the internship opportunities in the Imaging and Computing group at MIT.
