The International Mountain Conference 2019 brings together mountain researchers from various disciplines. Participants will address general questions and review the current state of knowledge. To provide PhD-students extended room to discuss their very particular research questions and challenges with other students and professors, this summer school is offered prior to the conference.
Supported by senior scientists, local PhD-students havedeveloped the general program of the summer school. The 'students for students' format guarantees that the program is tailored to the individual needs and interests of all participating PhD students. During registration, external students have the opportunity to raise their questions. Afterward, the program will be refined based on the interests of all participants.
The first part of the summer school (Sunday-Thursday) is hosted in the University Center in Obergurgl. The location in the heart of the mountains allows to directly experience the topics that are being discussed. The second part (Thursday-Saturday) takes place in the city of Innsbruck at the facilities of the University of Innsbruck.
