Summer Schools

Every other year we offer a five-days physics summer school which will focus on one of the main research fields of the Graduate School.
The summer school will cover a broad program of introductory and more advanced lectures.

We aim at having internationally renowned scientists as lecturers and are open to graduate students from other institutes worldwide. Short presentations by PhD students about their own research enrich the program.

Next summer school will be in 2018:      September 16-21, 2018 on the island Frauenchiemsee

Most recent summer school:                   September 18-23, 2016 on the island Frauenchiemsee


The three-days retreats offer our members, fellows and associated members the opportunity to get to know each other better and discuss physics in an informal atmosphere. Students can present their research projects in short presentations followed by discussions. In addition, lecture courses by distinguished scientists from leading institutions will be given, covering fields of relevance to the Graduate School and broadening our physics horizon.

Last annual retreat:         September 19-21, 2017


During our one to three-day workshops we cover training needs that are specifically tailored to the needs of our members. PhD students are welcome to address ideas and possible topics to the coordination office or to the student representative.

Previous workshops: FPGA-workshop, October 6-8, 2015 and 13-15, 2016.
