Theme 2011 - Probing Phase Transitions using Photons, Muons and Neutrons

Dear colleagues

We would like to draw your attention to the 10th PSI Summer School, taking place from August 13 - August 19 in Zug. It is the very first time that the PSI Summer School will be held in Zug - on the premises of the Institut Montana Zugerberg (international boarding school), Zug, Switzerland. 

In this Summer School more than 20 world-class experts will introduce the different aspects of phase transitions from an experimental and theoretical point of view. Phase transitions are not only a well known fact of everyday life, but also an important field of current research and of technological applications. At the end of the school you will not only understand why water turns into ice. You will know how to apply modern methods to the problem of phase transitions and you will have established contacts to the speakers and participants allowing you to utilize the gained knowledge for your own research.

As in the 2 previous years, the PSI Summer School offers again a twofold educational program with the school in Zug followed by hands on training at the PSI facilities in Villigen. The practical training will be available for approximately 20 students. The transfer from Zug to Villigen will take place on Friday, August 19, 2011.

Practical Training at the Paul Scherrer Institut - Neutron & Muon Sources & Swiss Synchrotron Light Source / August 20 - 22, 2011 / at PSI Villigen, Switzerland

We appreciate you forwarding this information to potentially interested graduates students at your institute/department. For more information and registration please have a look at http://www.psi.ch/summer_school_11
