Eighteenth Annual Post-Graduate Summer School

This is a copy of the program materials. Other information is available on the official 2011 PGSS site.


The PGSS is organized in sessions consisting of extended presentations and open discussions around a specific theme. Each day features three 90-minute sessions from 9am to 3pm, plus a free-ranging evening commentary of the topics of the day led by a discussant. The time between the end of the afternoon session at 3pm and the evening session is set aside for recreation, dinner, and informal discussions and collaboration. The final program, with links to the talk slides, appears below.
