    Scientific trends at the interfaces

    ISCD Summer Schools “Scientific Trends at the Interfaces” seek to promote academically motivated young students by strengthening their methodological understanding in linking theory and numerical experiments. They convey the excitement of new progress in computational sciences through the stimulus of learning. The objectives are to train and attract new undergraduate and newly graduate students interested by working at the interfaces between disciplines.

    Bringing together people from all over the world, this four weeks (mid July-mid August) educational program is an exciting opportunity to enrich your curriculum. Courses and tutorials are designed and taught by Sorbonne Université highly regarded scholars in an optimal learning environment.

    This summer school program is perfect for undergraduate students (L3-M2) considering studying theoretical or computational sciences at university level. It comprises intensive courses which aim to provide attendees with an introduction to both the theoretical foundations and the practical applications of some of the modern mathematical and computational techniques currently in use. Each course has theoretical and practical classes, in which students can experiment each technique with computers.

    Academic content and learning objectives

    The summer school course is a unique four weeks experience designed to give students an introduction to the undergraduate level in computational sciences; the course focuses upon showing how the theoretical concepts can applied to other disciplines or domains.

    Core topics introduced in the program include:

    • Applied Mathematics – students will understand how mathematics play a decisive role in any model or computation, often in the background;
    • Computer Science – students will be exposed to the development and analysis of algorithms for a variety of settings and applications;
    • Advanced Engineering – is related to a multidisciplinary approach that combines engineering and natural sciences or arts;
    • Biomedical informatics – is a programme in which students get to understand and design healthcare procedures or algorithms for genomics analysis;

    The summer program offers participants a wide range of topics from theoretical to applied sciences, from mathematics and computer sciences to medicine and biology or archeology. Students are challenged with interesting academic concepts and are encouraged to explore the current issues of their chosen disciplines.

    Students are expected to be familiar with the core concepts of the summer programme (see the prerequisite section in the booklet).
