  • is organized by three to five coordinators (max. four external coordinators and not more than two from the local area).
  • lasts four weeks.
  • schedule consists of one, maybe two talks per day and leaves much time for informal discussions and actual work.

Please contact the MIAPP directors if you need help identifying a local contact person.
  6. Expressions of interest to attend the program (for a minimum of two weeks) of key scientists in the field of the program.
  7. You may also decide to organize an additional short, two to three days,  workshop within the four-week program.
