courses Cortona

In Summer 2013 graduate courses in mathematics will be organized under the sponsorship of the Consorzio per l'Alta Formazione in Matematica (CIAFM), and of the Ministery of University and Research (MUR), at the University of Perugia, Perugia (Italy); the courses will take place from JULY 29 to AUGUST 30.

The courses are directed towards young graduates wishing to study mathematics at a graduate level.

The list of courses offered is attached. Each participant is required to choose two courses for a total of 10 hours a week of lectures in addition to problem sessions. Daily attendance is compulsory for participants. Although written tests will be given by the lecturers, no certification of proficiency will be issued.
Fifthteen SMI fellowships will be available to foreign participants to help cover their living expenses during the course. The fellowship holders will receive Euro 300 and will be paid lodging expenses in the Casa dello Studente. 

In case extra funds will become available, a limited number of travel grants, partially covering travel expenses, might be awarded to foreign participants coming from foreign countries, who explicitly request them. Should travel grants become available, they will only be paid upon submission of original travel documents, and will never exceed Euro 300.

Applications should be sent by e-mail to smi@fi.iac.cnr.it or by mail to the following address:
Polo Scientifico – CNR Edificio F
via Madonna del Piano
50019 Sesto Fiorentino (FI) – Italy
and should reach this address before June 15, 2013.

A selection committee will meet shortly afterwards and all admitted foreign applicants will be notified of the result in due time. Applications should contain the titles of three courses the applicant would like to attend (in order of preference), a BRIEF CURRICULUM VITAE, and a DETAILED CURRICULUM STUDIORUM (including a certificate with the list of university courses taken and corresponding grades). Applicants are requested to state if their participation is conditioned by the allotment of a fellowship and/or travel grant. They should indicate very clearly the exact address to which all correspondence concerning the Summer Course should be mailed.
