The summer school is suitable  for  PhD  and very advanced master students in mathematically oriented programs as well as postdocs who are interested in stochastic methods to model risk. A bachelor degree in mathematics, statistics or with a strong quantitative major is a minimal requirement for application.

Since the total number of participants is limited to 60, applying for participation is mandatory. For 20 foreign attendants the DAAD provides the means for scholarships covering accomodation (in two bed hotel rooms including breakfast), the registration fee and a flat rate (amount depending on the country of origin; a table with the maximum possible amounts can be found here) for the travel costs. To be considered for the scholarships please stress in your applications that you are applying for participation and a scholarship.

Applications should be sent by e-mail to Mrs. Eva Nacca.
