As in the years past, this
year's Summer School program will present adequate background
information on humor and laughter for those whose interest in these
matters is new. During the five days of lectures and workshops the
school will, however, also bring participants up to a "state of the
art" status in her/his own field of interest.
The sessions will start from Monday morning and continue to Saturday
afternoon inclusive, with one afternoon free for relaxation or an
optional sight-seeing tour. The Symposium part of the summer school is
where participants may present their planned or finished research or
ideas on how to implement and use humour in applied settings, in any
form they like. This will be held half way through the programme with
the main sessions being presented by a number of lectures and guest
The whole summer school will be held in English.
