Option Advanced (A)

Monday to Wednesday: Experienced applicants and developers are supervised by tutors to solve their own application problems and/or implement their own LBM. Thursday and Friday: They work independently, though discussions with the tutors are always welcome.

You will also participate in the Short Introduction by Participants on Monday at 10:30, social event, poster session, dinners and all coffee as well as lunch breaks with all other attendees.
