Location:  Bucharest, Romania

We are pleased to announce the second NewCompstar school, following the 2014 edition held in Barcelona. The format will consist of five courses on more basic and general topics, a few seminars on more specific topics and some practical exercise sessions. Few time slots will be dedicated to student poster presentations.
