Course Structure

Lectures and seminars will be held in the morning and late afternoon so as to leave plenty of time for free discussion, which is an important part of the Erice system. The early afternoons are reserved for private activities, special seminars, working groups, workshops, etc.

On one afternoon the possibility is offered to visit the beach, and there is a one-day excursion.

Details can be found in the program (overview).


The fee of 800 EURO covers the local costs in Erice including full board and lodging. Lunch and dinner will be provided at local restaurants. Drinks, beverages, and after-dinner coffee at the restaurants, telephone calls, personal laundry, etc. are not covered. Note that each accompanying person has to pay the fee as well.

Further information on details of the payment are given in the participant information.


There is a limited number of fellowships which cover part of the expenses.


Participants will be accommodated in rooms with one or two beds, the majority with shower or bath. Rooms are allocated in the office at San Rocco upon your arrival to Erice. Do not make reservations directly at hotels in Erice.
