Apply to participate
Applications are now open on the ICTP website - click one of the two links below and choose
'Apply here' from the left menu. The deadline is May 1, 2017.
If you have not applied to ICTP events before, you have to create
an account (which takes a while).
There are no registration fees.
If you wish to apply for support for your travel and/or accommodation, ICTP rules do not allow
to attend the first week only.
If you are completely self-funded, you may attend the first week only. In that case, click the first button and indicate that you wish to come for just the first week (and why)
in the 'Comments' section of the application.
If you are a graduate student, please ask your supervisor to write you a short letter of support,
confirming that the school will be useful for you, and briefly explaining why the school is relevant for your research. (The application form should ask for it automatically.)
ICTP has special funds to support participants from developing countries.
