About  ITSS

The International Travelling Summer School (ITSS) changes the location from one participating university or institute to another one each year. In 2019, the ITSS will be held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It will be organized by two groups of the Goethe University, namely, Goethe Leibniz Terahertz Center and Physikalisches Institute.
This year the Summer School will be much bigger than before! We expect around 130 participants (professors and students) taking part in the Summer School. The ITSS will be held in conjunction with the 4th Summer School of the ITN CELTA ( and the 1st Summer School of the ITN TeraApps ( 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 2019, the Summer School will be held at one of the most beautiful University Campus in Germany, which is located in Frankfurt am Main. It will take place in the “Casino” building of Goethe-University at Campus Westend,(Theodor-W.-Adorno-Platz 2, 60323 Frankfurt am Main). 


At the evening or during the social/cultural events participants will be able to explore the most international city in Germany which lies on the bank of the river Main with an impressive skyline. It is a global hub for commerce, culture, education, and tourism. Frankfurt has an outstanding public transport system but due to a compact design of the city we offer to explore it walking around.
