Together with local scientists, the participants will work on various current topics in research and development. Depending on previous knowledge and on the participant's interest, the assignment can be chosen from different areas. These fields include mathematics, physics, chemistry, neuroscience, software development tools, visualization, distributed computing, operating systems, and communication. Special emphasis is given to the use of supercomputers.
