The Summer School was held at a countryside recreational center. The participants profited from the picturesque surroundings, comfortable accommodations, and multiple sports facilities (enjoyed during the intervals between the lectures). All this left a lasting impression on the Summer School participants.
Pavel Sukhov, a 4th year student of the Department of Business Informatics and Applied Mathematics, HSE:
The overall impression from the Summer School is positive. I am glad that the LATNA laboratory employs all its resources to promote high-level scientific research in Russia. This Summer School provided me with an excellent opportunity to practice my English, especially the vocabulary employed by the mathematicians. One can read and write a lot of articles, but unless one participates in oral discussions, the language will not improve.
