Fees & payment


If you have received an Invitation Letter, you will be required to pay the School fee. The deadline for payment of the fee is:

Sunday 5 April 2020

If you have been offered a place at the School and we have not received your fee by this date, you risk losing your place at the School and it being offered to another applicant.

School Fee

The total fee of the School is EUR 550 per participant.

The fee covers:

  • Tuition and handouts.
  • Accommodation from Sunday 7 June to Saturday 13 June in shared twin or triple rooms at the MEDILS Conference Centre.
  • All meals, including breakfast, lunches, dinners and coffee breaks; starting with the lunch on Sunday 7 June, to the final meal of breakfast on Saturday 13 June.
  • All organized social activities (sport, excursions, special dinners etc.). Details will be provided at a later date.

The fee does NOT cover:

  • Travel expenses from the participants' home location or working place to the MEDILS Conference Centre in Split and back.
  • The cost of a travel visa where required.
  • Any extra cost incurred during the stay (including private excursions, private expenses in the hotel and on the campus, private transport costs, private meals etc.) will not be covered by the School organization.
  • Any cost incurred by a participant not following the official excursion or social  programme (e.g. meal cost of a participant not attending an excursion which includes a meal) will not be covered by the School organization.
  • Any other expenses not explicitly mentioned as included in the fee.

The School will neither arrange accommodation nor will cover any cost associated with an extended stay of students in Split. Participants arriving before Sunday 7 June morning/midday, or leaving after Saturday 13 June morning must organize their extended stay themselves.

Financial support

In some cases (eg. applications from developing countries), applicants may be considered for financial support towards the School fee.

Please note that any consideration of support depends on your specific circumstances, as well as how many requests we receive. Therefore we cannot - and will not - provide you an estimate before you have applied to attend the School.

If you wish to make a request for financial support, please submit your complete tCSC 2020 application, and send an e-mail to Computing.School@cern.ch (before 27 February 2020) to make an official request, explaining why you wish to be considered for financial support.

Please note we are not able to consider an applicant's suitability or eligibility without a complete application, including the supporting Reference Letter from your professor or supervisor.
