Participants will present their projects in plenary sessions followed by

session with one of the teachers. Each day will have a lecture by one of 
the teachers. The working language of the workshop will be English.

Participants will be expected to submit a 5-10 page summary of their

Accommodation and meals will be provided (in Hertford College). In 
addition, funding is being sought for transportation costs to and from 
England for students from Europe. Every effort will be made to secure 
such funding and no one should be discouraged from applying for 
financial reasons.
