Application deadline: 23:59 UTC, May 10th, 2020. There will be no deadline extension, so be sure to apply on time ;-) Check out the preview of the application form to see what information is needed for your application. Notifications of acceptance or rejection will be sent by June 1st, 2020. Some years we received up to 300 applications. Given that we accept 30 participants, this makes for an acceptance rate of less than 10%. Candidates will be selected on the basis of their motivation and profile. If you are not in Latin America you may want to apply to ASPP instead! Participation in the school is free, i.e. no fee is charged! However, participants should take care of travel, living, and accommodation expenses by themselves. Limited funding to support accommodation of participants may be available, but an applicants participation should not be conditioned on it.


You are supposed to know the basics of Python and git to participate in the lectures!

Go through the introductory material and verify that you know what is in there!


Be sure to read the FAQ before applying.
