Schools

The IUVSTA Schools program was established to provide education in a scientific topic within the fields covered by IUVSTA. The school is intended to provide an opportunity for students, particularly those who would not normally have such an opportunity without some support, to attend lectures and discussions with experts in the field. Schools will typically comprise 40-80 delegates.  They will normally last 4-6 days. In order to guarantee the financial stability of such a meeting these meetings are supported by a contribution from the IUVSTA STD Discretionary Fund, currently to a maximum of 10,000 Swiss Francs.  They are organized by one or more of the Scientific Divisions.

Please refer to the Guidelines for IUVSTA Schools
