POSTPONED: CCP5 Simulation Summer School

Durham was due to host the CCP5 Simulation Summer School for the second time in July 2020. The School will now not take place due to the coronavirus outbreak. We hope to increase the capacity of the 2021 School to compensate in part for the lost year. We believe it is important for the School to be held physically rather than virtually, since one of the School's important purposes is to bring together the next generation of simulators in person.
