The course and tutorials are held in the Informatikum. Thus they are co-located with the workshops on Monday and Tuesday.


All Course modules are open for everyone interested.
For the Course as a whole, graduate and PhD Students are the intended audience. It is possible to earn credit points (3 ECTS awarded by Leiden University, NL) on basis of successful participation in the Course including:

  • a preparation phase before the Course,
  • examinations for the theory modules in the form of small exercises or homework, and
  • a written report as an outcome of a project associated with the tutorial chosen for the third day.

For the preparation phase, students who have registered for the full Course, will receive one to two weeks in advance material containing preliminaries on the philosophy of net theory, basic notions, small examples, typical application areas etc.
For the examination of the Sunday/Monday modules, time will be available during the Course.
