The International School On Strings And Fundamental Physics invites
PhD students and postdocs for a two-week event to Munich/Garching, Germany.
The school is organized in the framework of the Excellence Cluster 'Universe',
which connects the two universities located in the Munich area as well as several research institutes
(list of cluster institutions).
Internationally well known scientists will give lectures on modern topics in
string theory. The first week will cover basics of string theory, while the
second week will focus on advanced topics. Several social events are planned.
Everybody worldwide, working in the field of string theory, is invited to apply for
participation. There is no registration fee.
Financial support is available for applicants from selected
regions, among them but not restricted to Africa, South America, parts of Asia and parts of Eastern Europe.
The aim is to give excellent people who cannot get
funding from their
home institute the possibility to participate in an international event,
and to encourage worldwide contacts and collaborations within the
The funding will cover any travel costs, accommodation, board and social events.
An international advisory committee will review the applications.
Funded participants will have the opportunity to give a brief (5 min) presentation on their
research. If participants would like to take the
opportunity to visit other universities and institutes in Europe before or after the school,
we will be happy to assist in establishing contacts with local scientists.
The school will take place at this location: Campus Garching
