The participants spend 5 days at the Anargyrios and Korgialenios School, attending lectures and seminars on select topics of current research trends.

More intensive sessions are scheduled in the mornings and evenings, with the hot afternoons allowing time for small breakout sessions or one-on-one discussions of research posters. The School provides the perfect environment for a stimulating yet unhurried meeting.
