The one week course is organized in the form of several interactive lectures addressing the five topics where each lecturer will focus on one topic. However, common themes are identified and explored in each lecture from different viewpoints. This reinforces learning about the phenomena as well as understanding their importance, while providing the participants with varied conceptual and methodological tools applicable to the problems at hand.

The lectures will be given by the following renowned experts in the field:
