Welcome to the Swiss Epidemiology Winter School in Wengen, Switzerland.

The next Winter School will take place from January 15th to 20th 2018, during the week following the International Lauberhorn ski race, when Wengen is calm, with few people on the slopes. Students stay on site and work hard in the mornings. They then have an extended break to review course materials, catch up on emails or (more likely) go skiing or snowboarding. We reconvene at 5 pm for computer or practical sessions.
