2012 Undergraduate and Graduate Summer School

  • DatesThe TMD (Turkish Mathematical Society) Undergraduate and Graduate Summer School will take place between July 9th and September 23rd 2012. You will find the current state of the programme below.  
  • Who may participate?
    Any student registered in a university mathematics degree may register for a suitable portion of the summer school. Exceptions can be made for students from other departments if enough places are available. (Students that have not yet finished their first year may attend the high school summer school, and add a few courses suitable to their level from the undergraduate programme. These students might be interested in the courses labelled "beginners" below, coloured in blue.)
  • Fees
    The normal daily fee is 70 TL; the fee is only 50 TL for those staying in tents. This covers both lodging, 4 meals a day and all the facilities that the Village offer.
  • Information

    Application: Click here for the application form for the 2012 TMD Summer School. Please send the completed form to orhanbagadir@nesinvakfi.org. 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 and we kindly ask you to resend it. 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 separately; the sole application is not sufficient.

    Duration of Stay: Participation must last an integer number of weeks (1, 2, 3 weeks etc. ). A week starts on a Monday and ends on a Sunday. 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. There are usually at least 4 lectures a day. Participants may give night seminars on subject they are familiar with, and in fact are encouraged to do so, time permitting. Some courses may be held in English; hence participants are assumed to have sufficient knowledge of English to attend such a course.

    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 instil a feeling of family and brotherhood in the village – no one will be asked to do more than their capacity allows.

    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.
