Casimir Science Days and Spring Schools



Since 2003, we have been organising Casimir Science Days for our community and Casimir Spring Schools for our PhD students and postdocs. The Casimir Science Days took place in Egmond aan Zee (2003, 2005), Eindhoven (2007), Leiden (2009), Delft (2011), and again Leiden (2013). The Casimir Spring Schools with the theme 'Sun, Sailing, and Science' were held in Heeg (2006, 2008), Arnemuiden (2010, 2012, 2014) and again in Heeg (2016, 2018).

This year (2023)

In 2023, we will organize both another Casimir Science Day in June (for PI's) and the Casimir Summer School in August (for PhDs and Postdocs). Use the links for more information and to register for either event.
