Location of the Hybrid Summer School 2022
Located in the heart of the urban area around the river Ruhr, the TU Dortmund University has a long history in research. 40 years ago, the computer science faculty was founded as one of the first of its kind. The city of Dortmund managed the transition from a center of coal mining and steel milling to information technology. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic it is not guaranteed that every international participant/lecturer can visit Dortmund. The summer school is thus planned as a hybrid event with local lectures in Dortmund and streamed lectures on the internet.
The summer school takes place locally at TU Dortmund, Otto-Hahn-Strasse 14, Lecture Hall E23.
The lectures will also be streamed via Zoom and Youtube to the remote audience of participants that could not travel to Germany.
For non-EU citizens: Please check if a Visa is needed for entering Germany. Detailed information about the procedure can be found here.
