The "Marktoberdorf Summer School" is a two weeks' course for young
computer scientists and mathematicians working in the field of formal
development of computer systems and its logical basis. The course is
designed to teach state-of-the-art scientific methods and to promote
international contacts among scientists.
Logical methods have significantly contributed to our ability to
specify, design, verify and understand programs and hardware. Logical
methods are used to specify computing tasks, check whether programs or
circuits are free from execution errors, check whether they are
consistent with specifications, synthesize code from higher level
description of algorithms and to guarantee the safe and secure operation
of computer systems. Our objective is an in-depth presentation of such
methods covering both theoretical foundations and industrial practice.
The topic of this year's Summer School will be presented by the following lecturers:
More information about lecturers and topics is given under the point "lectures" atop left.
Previous training and experience in computer science as well
as a solid background in mathematics are indispensable. The directors of the
Summer School are allowed to award only a limited number of participants.
Therefore, a letter of recommendation is requested. Based on this, all
applications will reviewed with due regard to find a fair distribution of these
80 places among all qualified applicants from the various countries. In your own
behalf, pay attention to cover a recommendation significant for your
qualification and research interests.
Applications without a letter of recommendation cannot
be taken into consideration.
The Summer School will be held at Marktoberdorf, a small town about 100 km
southwest of Munich. All students will be accommodated in the boarding house
(double rooms) of the local high school, Gymnasium Marktoberdorf. Due to the
limited number of rooms accompanying persons cannot be lodged in the boarding
The directors and the organizing committee of the Summer School do not assume
any responsibility or any liability for persons participating in the meeting.
All applicants will receive notice by May 15, 2005. Every person who is
admitted to attend the Summer School as participant has to pay Euro 620 for the
living expenses (covering accommodation, breakfast, lunch, dinner, refreshments,
and social events) and Euro 840 for the participation fee (including working
material - to be distributed upon arrival - and a copy of the final proceedings).
An invoice to the respective amount will be sent to all participants together
with a letter of acceptance. Payment of the invoice is due in advance and must
be remitted to our bank account by June 30 at the very latest.
It is hoped that you can obtain support for your travel and living expenses and
for the participation free from your institution or other sources in your own
country. However, should this not be possible, limited funds are available for
those participants who will need financial aid to cover a part of their costs.
If a support for travel expenses is granted, the amount will be reimbursed to
the participant during the Summer School at Marktoberdorf.
