! Note on Coronavirus/Covid-19 !
The approach followed by the TOMidEast organising committee is to prioritise and guarantee the safety of all participants and Faculty members. In recognition of the global health situation and persistent health concerns in Italy, the Organising Committee has decided that the 2020 edition of the TOMidEast Summer School will be delivered entirely online on the CISCO Webex platform. The date of the course are unchanged (22 June – 27 June) and the program will reflect as closely as possible the one which has been advertised.
All accepted candidates will be contacted by e-mail regarding the teaching methods used and will be informed on how to participate in the School.
Thank you for your understanding.
