The school will mainly cover the emerging fields of Condensed Matter Physics and special emphasis will be given on Nanoscience where Quantum Physics and Nanotechnology meet and the primary object of this event is to bridge the post-graduate course with PhD by interacting through a few advanced level classes where mainly MSc final year and PhD students are expected.

We hope this School will create a highly stimulating learning experience which is of long lasting value to the participants’ future careers.

Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible following the Registration link. We plan to have around 30 students. There is no registration fee. Local hospitality will be provided to all the participants. Limited travel supports are available. For logistics there may be a shortlisting of participants if the number of applicants is too high.
