Social activities

1000 IslandsAside from lectures and laboratory tutorials, there will also be social and professional events. Those will permit the participants to do social networking, discuss potential collaborations, exchange experiences and - most importantly - have informal contact with the lecturers and organizers. These events will include an opening reception, a sunset dinner boat cruise on the St Lawrence River across the world famous UNESCO classified 1000 Islands as well as group breakfasts and lunches. Details about these activities will be provided in the final program sent to all participants prior to the start of the summer school.
