About the Winter Schools

Winter schools in computational mathematics (137461/431) is a four-year project (2001-2004) funded by the Research Council of Norway. The winter schools will be held annually and last one week. The schools are aimed at graduate students and researchers at universities, research institutes and industry. Advanced undergraduate students are also welcome. The number of participants is limited.

The winter schools are held at Norwegian ski resorts and there will be time in the program for skiing and for other social activities in the evenings. The winter schools should therefore provide a perfect arena for making new contacts with other researchers.


There will be no fee for the winter schools; the winter schools are funded by the Research Council of Norway. However, the participants must pay for travel and accommodation. The majority of the participants are staying at Dr. Holms Hotel. The costs for rooms here are 890 NOK for single rooms and 850 NOK for double rooms, all meals included. The rooms are paid directly to the hotel.

NB! Drinks to all meals at Dr.Holms must be paid individually.

Undergraduate students may apply for a (limited) partial support.

Geilo lies at an altitude of 800 meters with its highest alpine slope starting at 1178 meters above sea level. This ensures good snow conditions throughout the winter. Geilo offers 35 varied and well groomed downhill slopes and 18 lifts with a capacity of 22000 persons pr. hour. Moreover, there are excellent possibilities for cross country, with approximately 500 km of trails, both in the valley and in the mountains.
