Call for QSPACE Training School on Noncommutative Geometry Structures

Dear members of the Management Committee of our COST Action,

As leader of our WG 4 I solicit proposals for the third Training School, 
to be held for one week during *June to September 2018*, covering the 
area of *WG 2*.

Deadline for proposals: *30 September *

Financial frame:

Total budget: 35,000 Euro (approx., subject to budget allocation and 
COST approval of Grant Period 4)

The following is an example of how the school budget could be 
(approximately) spent. The figures are not mandatory but should serve as 
a guideline for what is expected from each proposal:
- 45 students at 500 Euro each (max. allowed trainee grant is 1500 Euro)
- 5 lecturers (travel and lodging)
- local organizer support
For details of the reimbursement and other rules surrounding Training 
Schools, please consult Section 5 of the COST Vademecum.

Your proposal should justify the location of the school as being 
sustainable to support a reasonably sized cohort of students. It should 
detail the student and lecturer accommodation and the lecture facilities 
as well as list additional top-up funding from other sources. In 
proposing the date please avoid important
thematically related conferences. For good models, you may take a look 
at Training School I <http://qssg16.ipb.ac.rs/> (Belgrade, August 2016) 
or Training School II 
<http://www.physics.ntua.gr/~konstant/corfu2017/qg.html> (Corfu, 
September 2017).
Please email your proposal in PDF format not longer than 6 pages to 
qspace@itp.uni-hannover.de <mailto:qspace@itp.uni-hannover.de>. The Core 
Group will then decide and notify the successful proposer by 
mid-October. The concrete planning, including the selection of 
lecturers, then goes into the hand of WG 2 and the local organizers.

With kind regards,
Olaf Lechtenfeld
