What’s happening

Summer Schools

Every other year we organize a 5-days physics summer school or a topical workshop focusing on one of the main research fields of the Graduate School.
The physics school will cover a broad program of introductory and more advanced lectures, while a workshop will focus on a more in-depth exposition of a few selected topics.
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:      September 16-21, 2018 (Abbey Frauenwörth/Chiemsee)


Our 3-day retreats offer members, fellows and associated members, the opportunity to better get to know each other 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 (Kloster Johannisberg)


Several 1-3-day workshops for training professional or transferable skills have already been and will again be organized according  to PHD students needs.
