I have received and forward, for the information of those possibly
interested, especially in Italy:

<<We are now accepting applications for the seventh annual NKS
Summer School. The three-week, tuition-free program--June 22
through July 10 at CNR-Istituto ISTI in Pisa, Italy--is a unique
opportunity to get involved with original research at the
frontiers of science.

We are looking for highly motivated individuals who want to
advance their careers in an NKS direction. Our participants come
from many diverse backgrounds, but share a common passion to
discover and explore cutting-edge ideas. In past years, they have
included graduate students, undergraduates, professors, industry
professionals, artists, and even a few exceptional high-school

If accepted to the Summer School, you will work directly with
others in the NKS community--including Stephen Wolfram and a
staff of instructors who have made significant contributions to
NKS--on your own original project that could develop into
published papers or the foundations for your thesis.

Take a look at the lecture notes from previous years to get a
sense of what topics will be covered:

If you're serious about getting involved with similarly
innovative ideas at the core of NKS, you should consider applying
as soon as possible.
