The summer school is targeted primarily to doctoral students, but M.Sc. students and postdocs are also welcome to attend. The 2012 UBI Summer School builds on the legacy of the two previous highly successful UBI summer schools held in Oulu in 2010 and 2011.

The 2012 UBI Summer School comprises of three parallel workshops:

Prospective students should note the following guidelines:
* A student must submit the online application form available at to be considered for enrollment.
* A student is enrolled to one particular workshop that she/he is expected to complete to claim the credits (5.0 cp). The enrollment of a student to a workshop is conditional to the approval by the instructor of the workshop.
* A student may apply for more than one workshop. If the student is not enrolled to her/his first choice workshop, then she/he is considered for her/his second choice workshop, etc. A student should only apply to those workshops that she/he is really willing to attend.
* All students are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements and expenses.
