16 Sep 2018 - 21 Sep 2018 • Chiemsee island, Bavaria, Germany
Autumn School on Correlated Electrons: DMFT -- From Infinite Dimensions to Real Materials
17 Sep 2018 - 21 Sep 2018 • Jülich, Germany
Since the beginning of quantum mechanics, emergent many-body phenomena represent the grand-challenge in theoretical condensed-matter physics. Indeed, static mean-field approaches fail to capture even the simplest many-body effects, while diagrammatic techniques generally fail in the regime characteristic of strong correlations. The introduction of dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) has revolutionized this field. Two insights paved the way to this paradigm shift. The first is that in the limit of infinite dimensions all contributions to the self-energy become local. The second is that the locality of the self-energy makes it possible to build a new type of mean-field theory, dynamical in nature, by mapping a correlated lattice problem onto a self-consistent quantum-impurity model. In the last decades, thanks to advances in model building combined with the development of flexible and numerically exact quantum-impurity solvers, DMFT was successfully linked with ab-initio density-functional techniques, making it the method of choice for the investigation of correlated electron materials.

GISAS 2018 — Grazing Incidence Scattering Summer School
17 Sep 2018 - 21 Sep 2018 • Bayreuth, Germany
This summer school invites master students and PhD students to join with their own thin film samples suitable for grazing incidence small and wide angle X-ray scattering (GISAXS/GIWAXS) and grazing incidence small angle neutron scattering (GISANS) measurements. The unique program will consist of lectures on experiment design and scattering theory, necessary to understand the method and to choose experimental parameters. The individual X-ray experiments will be carried out remotely at the ALS, Berkeley, USA, while the neutron experiments take place at the FRM II on site. Furthermore there will be practical sessions with introduction to data analysis tools (HipGISAXS and BornAgain) and tutorials in applying them, where each student will work on their own data. Overall, this summer school will prepare students to carry out grazing incidence experiments at large scale facilities including the relevant data analysis. Application via mini-proposals is open now. The number of participants is limited and acceptance is in order of submission.

AHEAD — X-ray and Multi-wavelength Surveys School
19 Nov 2018 • Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics,, Germany
AHEAD aims at providing young astronomers the specific theoretical and practical skills to successfully exploit the current and future generation of large surveys. We will include in-depth discussion of both high-energy experiments and multi-wavelength surveys across the entire electromagnetic spectrum. To this end, world class experts in several fields will deliver lectures and conduct hands on sessions, including analysis of real catalogs and data. The students will have the opportunity to interact with renowned scientists in a highly motivating environment.
50th IFF Spring School 2019: Scattering! Soft, Functional and Quantum Materials
11 Mar 2019 - 22 Mar 2019 • Jülich, Germany
The IFF Spring School 2019 will provide a solid introduction into scattering methods for the investigation of condensed matter and biomaterials. Advanced methods at novel large scale facilities such as the x-ray free electron laser XFEL or the MW spallation sources will be highlighted. The power of modern scattering techniques will be demonstrated by examples for topical research in various fields - from Quantum Materials through Functional Materials to Soft Matter and Life Sciences. Finally, complementary techniques such as electron spectroscopy, modern electron microscopy etc. will be presented.
The participants of the Spring School are expected to have a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics and physics or chemistry of condensed matter. The School comprises around 50 hours of lectures plus discussions, and will be held in English.
MATRAC 2 School 2019 — Application of Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Materials Science with special focus on Fundamental Aspects of Materials
31 Mar 2019 - 05 Apr 2019 • Herrsching, Germany
The MATRAC 2 School will provide a systematic overview of the application of neutrons and synchrotron radiation to the structural analysis of engineering materials and will focus on neutron scattering and imaging experiments. Students and young scientists from research and industry from all of Europe interested in this field are welcome to participate.
