About the school:
The school is a continuation of the highly successful series of summer schools on physics of nanostructures, surfaces and thin films held every three years in the Czech Republic. The school programme aims at presenting current directions of research at both tutorial as well as state-of-the-art level.
The school provides a place where students and young researchers could learn from invited leading scientists, discuss their own research plans and link to each other. Traditionally, the school takes place at Devět Skal in the relaxing environment of a small recreation resort hidden in the forests at the Czech-Moravian highlands, half way between Prague and Brno. The resort offers environment ideal both for discussing science as well as relaxing afterwards.
