* To participate in the group sessions, the students should select, upon their registration in the Summer School, which group they would like to participate in. All those interested should, furthermore, fill out the relevant fields of the form with questions they would like to see debated in the session, briefly describing their research projects and the questions it raises. 

This is your chance to discuss face-to-face with world-renowned figures of popular music and DIY cultures, in a focused environment which will give you all the tools to make the most of your research. From bachelor students still taking their first steps, to advanced candidates in the final line to their PhD, the KISMIF Summer School will take you deep into the problematics of your research.
