3rd PALA Summer School

As of 2013, the PALA Summer School will be held before the PALA annual conference, at the conference venue. This means that this year it will take place at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. At past PALA summer school events, only students were eligible to attend. This policy has been changed. This year the summer school is open to all Palans. We especially encourage students (both undergraduate and graduate), early career researchers and scholars who live in countries with fragile currencies to attend. The attendance fee is 100 Euros per person, to be paid via the PALA 2013 conference website. For all questions and queries, please contact the conference organizers at

Please note that the summer school will be limited to 25 participants and places will be allocated on a first registered/paid basis.
