    Dear moderators:

    Thanks,

    SEVENTH


    MOTOR CONTROL SUMMER SCHOOL

    In Poland!!!



    We invite bright, open-minded graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and
    young professionals to apply for admission to the Motor Control Summer
    School # VII (MCSS-VII). MCSS-VII will be a five-day event, June 24 - June
    28, 2010. It will include an arrival day (June 24), three days of sessions
    (June 25-27), and a departure day (June 28). We plan to bring together 6-10
    faculty and 25-35 students selected from the pool of applicants.



    Acceptance criteria:

    (1) Relevant experience reflected, in particular, in the number and quality
    of publications;

    (2) As a rule, one-two students per research group will be accepted
    (including the groups led by the faculty);

    (3) Preference will be given to productive, advanced graduate students and
    postdoctoral fellows;

    (4) Balanced representation of different sub-areas such as neurophysiology,
    psychology, biomechanics, modeling, rehabilitation, etc.



    The program will include interactive seminars led by the faculty. Students
    are encouraged to interrupt the speakers, ask for clarifications, and raise
    issues related to their own research.



    There will be no tutorials; the students should know basic anatomy, muscle
    physiology, neurophysiology, biomechanics, basic calculus, basic operations
    with vectors and matrices, statistics, etc. The style of the lectures and
    discussions will be frank and open.



    Tuition: none.



    Each participant will pay his/her expenses. There will be no tuition, and
    the faculty will receive no compensation for their participation. MCSS has
    no funds (the total budget is exactly $0) to help with travel costs. All
    participants will get a formal certificate to help them get reimbursed
    through whatever means they have at their disposal.



    SITE:



    An arrangement has been made with Hotel Gawra in Wisla, (Southern Poland;
    can be reached via Krakow Airport and Katowice Airport). We expect the
    lodging+food rates to range between $300 and $350 (euro 220-250), depending
    on single/double occupancy for four nights including all meals. Please, do
    not contact the Hotel and do not make any travel arrangements until you get
    an official acceptance letter to join MCSS-VII.
