This year the international travelling summer school (ITSS) is held in conjunction with the 3rd Summer School of the ITN CELTA (http://www.celta-itn.eu/). The ITSS changes the location from one participating university or institute to another one each year. In 2018, the ITSS/CELTA Summer School will be organized by the Czech Academy of Sciences and Brno University of Technology, the Czech Republic.
This year, up to 100 participants (professors and students) can take part in the ITSS/CELTA School. Participating students are carefully selected by their professors. The language of the ITSS/CELTA School is English.
The ITSS program consists of lectures presenting the newest achievements in microwave and optical engineering, electronics and photonics technologies for Terahertz technologies and application. The lectures are always followed by discussions and interactions among students and professors. This year, also lectures on Ethics in research and Technology assessment will be given. Moreover, the Morning of companies is going to be organized to provide an opportunity for practical measurements and computer simulations to students.
During the ITSS/CELTA Summer School, students are grouped into teams of mixed nationalities. The teams work on projects oriented to the design and modeling of microwave and optic devices and THz systems. At the end of the ITSS/CELTA Summer School, each team has to represent results of the project.
In frame of the ITSS/CELTA Summer School, participating PhD students can give a brief overview about their research. That way, links among young researchers are built.
The program of the CELTA Summer School includes technical and cultural visits, which presents the organizing country to School participants.
