Triggered by the rapid advance of experimental techniques in quantum optics and the development of the field of quantum technology, the underlying question of the interpretation of quantum mechanics has recently received a lot of attention again.
This “Enrico Fermi” Summer School provides an overview of recent theoretical and experimental developments of the foundations of quantum mechanics to students, post-docs and scientists interested in this field.
The International School of Physics “Enrico Fermi”, one of the most significant cultural activities of the Italian Physical Society, was founded in 1953 by the president at that time, Giovanni Polvani.
The aim of the School is to present the state-of-the-art and the future perspectives for materials applied to the generation and storage of renewable and sustainable energy.
The aim of this School is to provide a comprehensive foundation for researchers in the field of soft matter liquids and complex fluids. The lectures will introduce key topics of current interest together with the theoretical, experimental and computer simulation approaches used to address them. The School is directed towards postgraduate students from a wide range of backgrounds including physics, chemistry, chemical engineering and biophysics and abstract submissions were recently opened.
Registration for the third edition of the European School in Instrumentation for Particle and Astroparticle Physics [ESIPAP] is now open.
ESIPAP was founded by the laboratory of excellence ENIGMASS and offers advanced and intensive modular courses in instrumentation for students (Master and Ph.D.) and for professionals.

The 19th International School of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics [ISCRA 2014] will take place from 4-11 July 2014 in Erice, Italy. The theme of the school is “Exploring the High Energy Universe”.
The course, which is held biannually, will focus on high-energy processes in our universe made available through present and future experiments from both ground-based and space-based observatories. ISCRA 2014 is designed to provide an overview of the new findings in high-energy astrophysics and how this has affected our understanding of the…
The CERN Accelerator School [CAS] and the Norwegian University of science and Technology [NTNU] recently organised a course on Advanced Accelerator Physics. The course was held in Trondheim, Norway from 18-29 August 2013 at the NTNU.
The course followed an established format with lectures in the mornings and practical courses in the afternoons. The lecture program consisted of 32 lectures, supplemented by discussion sessions, private study and…
The 7th International Congress on Advanced Electromagnetic Materials in Microwaves and Optics [Metamaterials 2013] will take place in Bordeaux, France from 16-19 September 2013.
The aim of Metamaterials 2013 is to provide a unique forum to share the latest results of the metamaterials research and bring together the scientific community working in the field of artificial electromagnetic materials and their applications. An extended list of the discussed topics is available on the…
The International School of nuclear physics will take place from 16-24 September 2013 in Erice, Italy.
Founded by Prof. H. Schopper in 1974, the school celebrates its 35th course. This year again, recognized experts in the field of nuclear physics and young scientist as well as PhD students will meet and discuss problems at the interface between nuclear, particle, and astrophysics.
The course will focus this year on “Neutrino Physics: Present and Future”. The invited lecturers will present a review…
