9th HGSFP Winterschool 2016
University Center Obergurgl 16.1.-20.1.2016
The HGSFP Winterschool 2016 is a student-organized five-day winterschool that brings together students from all branches of the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics to facilitate scientific and social exchange among its members. The school is held at the University Center Obergurgl (http://www.uibk.ac.at/obergurgl/) right in the middle of the beautiful Austrian Alps. The participants will attend a lecture program that covers all branches of the HGSFP and present their own research to their fellow students during a poster session. In addition, the timetable of the school provides ample opportunities to connect with the lecturers and the other students during both social and sportive activities.
The HGSFP covers the accommodation in shared double rooms, half-board, the bus transfer from Heidelberg to Obergurgl and back as well as the social program for all participants.
Please note that the bus will depart from Heidelberg already in the evening of January 15th.
Online registration will be open from 5.10.2015 - 31.10.2015.
The lectures are distributed over all branches of the HGSFP and are held by active researchers in their respective field. All lectures will be suitable for any physics student at the PhD level including students from different branches.
