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 2021 edition of the TOMidEast Summer School will be delivered entirely online on the CISCO Webex platform. The School will be held from the 5th to the 9th of July.

All accepted candidates will be contacted by e-mail regarding the teaching methods which will be used and will be informed on how to participate in the School. Thank you for your understanding.
