Summer and winter schools
Within the framework of the IRTG, an annual summer schools is planned to foster training, co-operation and dissemination within the CRC-TR and externally. The school program is organized in cooperation with the existing structured graduate programs (MAINZ, MPGC, Ingenium) and with the CECAM (Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire) node SMSM (Soft Matter and Sta-tistical mechanics, see http://www.cecam.org/node_smsm.html), which is run by MPIP, JGU, TU Darmstadt and the university of Stuttgart. Participation in the schools is not limited to doctoral students but it is open to all the members of CRC-TR and to external scientists, so that these events represent a way to bring together all the contributors to the CRC-TR and interested members of external groups. PIs of the CRC-TR are expected to contribute to the schools with oral presentations and students with poster presentations.
