Indian-Summer School of Physics, Prague, Czech republic

Indian-Summer School is a series of summer courses on various topics of physics which has been annually held in the vicinity of Prague since 1988. It is intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, postdocs and researchers in the field. The ISS is currently organized by Nuclear Physics Institute of the CAS and Institute of Particle and Nuclear Physics, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague.

Did you know that... indian summer is a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs in autumn in the Northern hemisphere?

Every course has its own website. This page only contains links to them.
