Thematic courses:

- ‘non-specialist’ courses are geared towards PhD students and postdocs that do not specialize in the particular areas dealt with by the courses but would like to seize the opportunity to broaden their horizon beyond their respective specializations;
- ‘specialist courses’ are more geared towards PhD students and postdocs that have already some first-hand experience in the areas covered by the courses and are interested in discussing related advanced research issues.

Methodological courses:

- ‘basic’ courses are geared towards people with very little experience in the methods dealt with by the courses;
- ‘advanced’ courses are geared towards people with previous experience in the domains addressed by the courses and are seeking expert tutoring on more complex problems arising in connection with the specific methods under discussion.
