2016 Undergraduate and Graduate Summer School

  • DatesOur 2016 Undergraduate and Graduate Summer School will take place in the Nesin Mathematics Village between the dates of July 18 and September 25, 2016. 
  • Aims
    To make good use of the summer vacations of mathematics students, to help them make up for missing parts in their basic knowledge, to provide knowledge about certain areas which are not covered in the ordinary university curriculum due to time restrictions, to provide an environment where they can meet and socialize with mathematicians from Turkey and around the world, and finally to facilitate scientific collaboration.
     
  • Who may participate?Any student registered in a mathematics department may register for a suitable portion of the summer school. Exceptions can be made for students from other departments if the programs are not filled.  
  • FeesFees: The normal daily fee is 100 TL; for those staying in tents the fee is 70 TL. This covers accomodation, four meals a day and all the facilities that the Village offer.  
  • Information

    Application: Click here for the application form to the 2016 Summer School. Your application will processed automatically. You will receive a confirmation e-mail to notify you that your application has indeed been received. If you do not receive such an e-mail within two days, then something has gone wrong, so we kindly ask you contact us directly (cerenaydin@nesinvakfi.org, for other contact adresses see https://matematikkoyu.org/eng/contact.php). The dates between which you wish to participate and the two courses you guarantee you will follow are obligatory fields of the application form. Once your application has been accepted you must register; only the application is not sufficient. Please specify on the form the amount of monetary support you require, if any.

    Duration of Stay: Participation must last an integer number of weeks (1, 2, 3 weeks etc.). A week starts on a Monday at 08:00 am and ends on the following Sunday at 20:00. Generally one is expected to arrive a day before the start date and leave on the end date (both Sundays). Our weeks consist of six working days – we have a day of vacation midweek, on Thursdays. On these days those who wish to go to the seaside or on organized trips (to Efes, boat tours, the National Park, etc. ) do so.

    Each lecture lasts approximately 2 hours. They may last 1,5 hours in case the program is too full. There are usually at least 8 hours of lecture per day. More than one lecture will usually take place simultaneously. Participants may give night seminars on subject they are familiar with, and in fact are encouraged to do so, time permitting. Most courses are in English. The language of the course is specified in the course list (see the L column). X means that the language may be English in case there is a non-Turkish speaker among the audience.
    There is plenty of space in the Village to pitch tents. As we have a restricted amount of tents, we kindly ask you to bring your own tent if you have one.
    Excepting physical reasons, participants are expected to help with Village chores such as laundry, dishwashing, cleaning, gardening, and cooking. We aim to instill a feeling of family and brotherhood in the village – no one will be asked to do more than their capacity allows.

    Accommodation: Being younger, high school students will prioritarily be placed in the Village houses/dorms. Undergraduate and graduate students will mostly stay in tents. Experience shows that due to the greater freedom and independence it affords them, older students themselves prefer this arrangement. If you have any doubts about this subject please write to us. Though we can give no guarantees, you can be sure we will do our best to come to an arrangement which is satisfactory to you.

    Important Note: We urge you to pay attention to the registration message that will be sent to you after you have completed your application. Your registration to the summer school will not be complete until you have sent the registration form and completed the other necessary procedures. In other words, you must apply, then register; both procedures are necessary.
