The summer school is sponsored by the Trond Mohn foundation and Tromsø Research Foundation. Participation is free of charge, however, every participant should register ahead of time. We have a limited amount of support available. In order to qualify for support you have to register before April 1st.
Tromsø is a city with 70.000 inhabitants and above the polar circle. The easiest way to come to Tromsø is by plane. You might find direct flights from Helsinki (Finnair), Stockholm (SAS), Copenhagen (SAS), Frankfurt (Lufthansa), Alicante (Norwegian), London (Norwegian), Gdansk (Wizzair), but most of the flights to Tromsø come from Oslo (SAS and Norwegian).
The weather in Tromsø in June can vary from sunny to stormy, and the temperatures vary between 5° C to 20° C. We encourage you to check the forecast before you pack your luggage. Furthermore, note that during the whole month of June, the sun will not set and you will experience the midnight sun.
All the lectures will take place at the main campus of the university. There is eduroam on campus, and we will also make sure that there will be a guest network. There will be served coffee/tea as well as fruit during the breaks. We will also serve lunch and dinner.
There are plenty of hotels in the city but also cheaper solutions on Airbnb.
We plan to hike to the mountains around Tromsø on one of the afternoons (good shoes will be required) and we will have dinner in a restaurant above the city, which can be also reached by a cable car.
