    COVID-19 related information

    The Winter School is planned as a face-to-face event, as the programme is not suitable for online presentation. The situation in Austria is continuously being closely monitored and seems under control at the moment. We are well aware that the global situation is in general very unpredictable, therefore we will keep all interested students well informed about further developments and in case that any short-term changes may occur. Up to a maximum of 12 students will be admitted to the course and the event will be held in compliance with all safety and hygiene standards.
