Organization issues:
Coronavirus related If the situation permits, to enable the participants to fully profit from the our intention is to give the lectures in person. The lab sessions will be organized via Zoom. We will follow the general instructions to have a sufficient distance between us while working. Also, we discourage you to attend the lectures in case you have some symptoms, that could be related to the corona virus effects.
