Impressions from the successful SPP 1937 Winter School and annual Retreat 2017. We thank Prof. José Henrique Veiga Fernandes from the Champalimaud Institute, Lisbon, for his Keynote Lecture at the Winter School.


A Flash Talk Section and a Poster Session, where PhD students and Postdocs presented their current research results, were part of the Winter School.
