COVID19 update and deadline change

Dear Sigma Campers and Families,

In this uncertain and trying time SigmaCamp is thinking about all of you and your loved ones and wishes you all good health.

No one can know now what the world will look like in August of this year. However, we are hopeful that by that time the pandemic will be over and we will be able to run SigmaCamp as usual. But should the need be, we are working on the online version as a backup - even though we know that online is not the same. Sigma is not just an educational facility, it is a wonderful interactive community in and out of the lectures and labs. We would hate to miss out on the opportunities to provide these interactions to each and every one of you.

Because of the uncertainty of the physical camp for 2020, we are extending the QQ submission deadline to May 15. Admission decisions will be made by June 1, with the deadline of June 15 for accepting the offer. We will also offer a flexible refund policy; details will be announced by June 1.

If the camp would not be able to take place physically this year, everyone admitted for 2020 will secure automatic admission for SigmaCamp 2021 (assuming they are within the age limit in 2021). We will think of getting some great content for students who will be too old to attend SigmaCamp in 2021.

Stay healthy!

Always, scientifically yours
