CCMX Summer School29.08.2012- 29-31 August 2012, Lausanne - Multiscale Modelling of Materials
The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the different modelling techniques available to materials scientists and engineers along with the basics to create such models.
New deadline for registration: Friday 10 August 2012
This summer school is open to materials scientists and engineers, from both industry and academia, in particular PhD students.
This short course can be validated with 1 ECTS credit in the Doctoral programmes of EPFL and ETH Zurich, after acceptance by the corresponding institution. In this case, full attendance and a final examination will be requested. PhD students who give oral presentations in the afternoons will be exempted from the examination.
PhD students presenting their work in an oral contribution will be dispensed of the examination in order to obtain their ECTS credit. The oral contributions will take place in the afternoons. Abstracts can be submitted until the end of June to Paolo Di Napoli.
The brochure should be printed double sided on A4 paper, and folded together to form the 8 page brochure.
