We all are aware of the global impact of the Covid-19 virus and that the World Health Organization and National Health Authorities have strict recommendations that include social distancing. The Organizing Committee has been continuously monitoring the situation and assessing the risks. In view of the spread pattern and international evolution of the situation, we believe that the conditions to run the 30th International Travelling Summer School on Terahertz Technologies, Microwaves and Lightwaves, completely safe will not be met. Therefore, we have taken the decision to postpone the Summer School till next year.
The International Travelling Summer School (ITSS) changes the location from one participating university or institute to another one each year. In 2020, the ITSS will be held at the TU/e in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. It will be organized by the Research Group Terahertz Photonic Systems. We expect around 100 to 150 participants.
The ITSS will be held in conjunction with the 5th Summer School of the ITN CELTA (http://www.celta-itn.eu/). Participating students are carefully selected by their professors. The language of the Summer School is English.
The ITSS program consists of lectures presenting the newest achievements in microwave and optical engineering, electronics and photonics technologies for Terahertz technologies and application. The lectures are always followed by discussions and interactions among students and professors. Moreover, a company training is going to be organized to provide an opportunity for practical measurements and computer simulations to students. The program of the Summer School includes a scientific and a cultural visit tailored to the host country.
Already at the beginning of the Summer School, the links among young researchers will be built during a poster session where participating PhD students can give a brief overview about their research. These links will be strengthened during the team work and social events. The team work is based on teams of mixed nationalities and oriented to the design and modelling of microwave and optic devices and THz systems. At the end of the Summer School, each team has to represent results of their project.
In 2020, the Summer School will be held at one of the most beautiful green University Campus in the Netherlands, which is located in Eindhoven. The campus is located in the center of the city at 8 minutes walking distance from the Eindhoven railway station and 30 minutes by bus from Airport Eindhoven. The Summer School will take place in the Auditorium, campus building number 1.
