The full programme and lecture notes are available on the School website:


In addition, Elusives ESR Bruno Martin gave a talk on science journalism.


The poster session took place on Wednesday evening, with the prizes awarded after a round of secret votes [see photo]. The winners were: in joint third place, Andrea Caputo and Felix Henningsen, Chloe Ransom was second and Simon King took the first place. Congratulations!


School attendees enjoyed social activities which included a grill party in the monastery courtyard after the poster session, and a boat cruise down the river Salzach and tour of the Burghausen castle on Thursday afternoon and the School social dinner at the Agustiner restaurant on Thursday evening [see photos].
