The administration is proud to announce that the recent doctoral symposium held in Zug, Switzerland August 28th to Sept 1st was a great success. The symposium had over 20 visitors from Europe, Africa the Middle East. We were especially encouraged to see many of the African candidates make the long journey to the symposium from their homes. The candidates worked tirelessly each day from 9 am into the evening hours as well as sharing social time together. The administration was particularly encouraged to see all candidates coming together socially and remaining after the lectures to assist one another in understanding the material and mastering some of the required data analysis software.
We look forward to the next Symposium scheduled for May-2014 in Switzerland and look forward to seeing many new faces. Again, congratulations to everyone who attended. Below you may see a few photos from the event.
