Summer (Autumn, Winter and Spring) Schools

The Isaac Newton Institute has been running Summer Schools (as well as Autumn, Winter and Spring Schools) since its inception. These schools typically include tutorial sessions which provide an introduction to the field. 

Viewed as an invaluable resource not only to early career researchers but to the mathematical sciences community more broadly, seminars given during these sessions are referred to time and again as common ground from which to build a mathematical discussion both during and after the programme.

Listed below are some particularly celebrated Schools. Please follow the links to see the timetable and to watch the seminars where they're available. We hope they prove both valuable and insightful.
