The school will combine formal classes, hands-on tutorials, round-table discussions and research seminars on the structure, dynamics and evolution of the Earth interior. It is aimed at PhD students and young researchers.
- Mornings, starting at 9:00am, two classes of 1:30 each.
- Afternoons, starting at 4:30pm, a class and 1 seminar.
- The detailed program is available here. Please check it regularly since it can be subject ot changes.
