The first day of the Summer School takes a Symposium form, and is dedicated to public lectures of the invited teachers and some other presenters, and in addition to its function in the Summer School it also features as a meeting for researchers and artists with an interest in these issues. The remaining two days concentrate on seminar work.
The seminar sessions are meant for post-graduate students whose work is related to the topic of the Summer School, while the adjoining lectures are open for everyone.
