Frontiers of Condensed Matter Summer School
The 9th International Doctoral Training Session "Frontiers of Condensed Matter" will take place in Les Houches, Sept 16-24, 2023.

This session is organized jointly by the Physics Graduate School of Grenoble, by the Casimir Research School of Delft-Leiden (Netherlands), the Donostia International Physics Center in San Sebastian (Spain), the Graduate School of Quantum Matter at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the Transregional Collaborative Research Center Elasto-Q-Mat (Germany), and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute in Basel (Switzerland). It aims at offering final year Master students and junior PhD-students (1st/2nd year) a high-level training program in the general area of condensed matter physics.

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.
