Each master class will consist of four 90-minute lectures. In addition a number of individual lectures will be given by younger researchers.

Working days are Monday to Friday (Friday - half day). Cultural activities will be organized for the two week-ends. This may include a guided tour of Jerusalem, though snow cannot be assured.

A limited amount of funding is available for young participants, to include free accommodation, and in some special cases a fixed-amount travel grant. All participants should complete and return the application form as soon as possible, and not later than 1 December, 2007.
