Some financial support will be offered to a limited number of PhD students and young researchers to allow them to attend this thematic school. Requests should be emailed to the organizers along with a CV and the names of a couple of referees.
This thematic school is funded by the project "Attractivité 2015" provided by the Université Paris-Sud.
Organizers: Frédéric Bourgeois, Rémi Leclercq, Anne Vaugon.
