GDR MésoImage and the German research group DFG Forschergruppe 760 "Scattering Systems with Complex Dynamics" organized a Summer school on wave propagation and scattering in random, chaotic and other complex systems. The School took place at the Institute of Scientific Studies in Cargèse (IESC) at Corsica island, France, from Monday, July 12 to Friday, July 16, 2010. The participants were expected to arrive on Sunday, July 11 in the afternoon and to leave on Saturday, July 17 in the morning. Transportation (bus) was organized between the Ajaccio airport and Cargèse on these dates.

The School provided insightful lecture courses on modern developments in the fields of wave physics of disordered systems and quantum chaos, as well as on other wave phenomena in complex environments. The lectures were given by internationally recognized experts. They were supplemented by a number of shorter talks given by younger participants and focusing on more specific aspects of particular subjects discussed in the lectures. Finally, a poster session was organized to allow all the participants to present and discuss their research.

Program :

Final program is available here (last modified 07/07/2010).

Applications :

The deadline for applications was May 31, 2010.

There was no registration fee, only a lodging fee (300 €, to be paid upon arrival at the Institute) that covers double occupancy of a room, lunches at noon, and one conference dinner. Dinners were at the own expense of participants and many nice restaurants exist in and around Cargèse. CNRS employees (including postdocs employed by CNRS and BDI graduates) had their stay in Cargèse (lodging and lunches) covered by the organizers and could have their travel and dinners reimbursed by the local Bureau de Formation Permanente of their Délégation Régionale.

In contrast to what we announced previously, camping near the Institute was not possible for fire safety reasons.

Limited funds were available to support a number of young participants.
