Summer School "Frontiers of condensed matter"

This Les Houches international doctoral training session aims at offering Master and PhD students a training program in the area of Condensed Matter Physics. It is organized jointly by the Ecole Doctorale de Physique de Grenoble (France), the Casimir Research School Delft-Leiden (Netherlands), and the Donostia International Physics Center, San Sebastian (Spain).
The program will consist of several courses. The duration of each course is 3 * 1.5 hours. The courses will be complemented by more specialized research seminars on timely topics.
During the session, there will be plenty of time for informal discussions between participants and lecturers. A poster session will be organized, including a short oral presentation at the beginning of the session enabling the participants to present their research interests to each other.
The session can host 70 participants, (including lecturers - limited by the size of the lecture hall), and is intended for experimentalists and theoreticians.
