Nordita Winter School 2018 in Condensed Matter Physics
from 22 January 2018 to 02 February 2018 Nordita, Stockholm



Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden


The purpose of this winter school is to provide PhD students and young postdocs in the Nordic and Baltic countries with introductory courses in a range of the most important topics in the field of condensed matter physics. Furthermore, the school will provide a way to bring together students and young postdocs across different fields, research institutions and countries.


There will be two principal lecturers each giving a two-hour lecture in the morning. In the afternoon there will be one talk on current topics on the subject. There will also be tutorial sessions during afternoon.

Registration for this school is now open. Registration deadline has been extended to November 30, 2017.

The school is primarily intended for PhD students and young postdocs from the Nordic and Baltic countries. Advanced masters students may also apply. Students outside the Nordic and Baltic countries may also apply although financial support is available for only Nordic and Baltic students.
