Upcoming International Schools

International Schools

Summer and Winter Schools since the foundation of the IMPRS

The IMPRS summer/winter schools are a highlight of the curriculum. Every year the IMPRS offers one or two summer/winter schools on themes of a multidisciplinary nature. Internal and external speakers give tutorial lectures as well as overviews of the state-of-the-art in selected research areas. These workshops are open for everyone, and participation is free of charge. The IMPRS students play an active role in planning, organizing, and running these schools. Most of these schools will be organized jointly with international partner institutions, like the University of British Columbia or the University of Tokyo.

The following Summer and Winter Schools have taken place up to now:

• Theoretical and Computational Material Science, Stuttgart, June 2003
