NKS Summer School 2011, June 27 - July 15, Boston MA

The NKS Summer School is a unique opportunity to get involved with original research at the frontiers of science. At each Summer School session, about 40 students from a diverse range of scientific backgrounds learn about NKS and how to apply it to their fields of interest.

The three-week-long program consists of lectures and individual research projects relating to core NKS issues. The NKS Summer School is primarily targeted at advanced undergraduates and early graduate students, although those in different circumstances are considered. We are looking for students who want to move their careers in the NKS direction.

All are expected to have read NKS in some level of detail. Additionally, because all projects will be done using Mathematica, learning its basics before the start of the program is highly recommended.

Who is the Summer School for?
It's intended for anyone who wants to be able to do NKS research projects. We expect students to be ready to do an independent research project, but they can be at various stages in their formal education. We typically have graduate students, undergraduates, postdocs, and a few professors, teachers, and professionals.

What happens at the Summer School?
It's a mixture of lectures, individual interactions with instructors, and a project. Each student is expected to do a substantial NKS research project, which will be at least the beginning of material suitable for a published paper.

How much does the Summer School cost?
The Summer School itself is free—there is no tuition fee. Dorm-style accommodations and meal plans will be available for the three-week session, and in past years have cost, respectively, $890 and $452. Students are free to make their own arrangements for lodging and meals.
