Annual ESID Summer School 

In the ESID Summer Schools, interactive talks and workshops led by leaders in the field intertwined with social interaction in a pleasant setting are being offered to applicants selected on the basis of their achievements in the field. Feedback received from the Summer Schools has always been extremely positive; participants have found the course to be invaluable.
