This summer school is intended for Physics students, both, advanced undergraduates and postgraduates.

The lectures will cover a rather broad range of topics, from Experimental Quantum Optics, over Wave Chaos and Random Matrix Theory to Quantum Information and Many Body Systems. Courses will be given by internationally recognized experts in their fields. You will have an excellent opportunity to have a closer look at the different research fields; find out about the kind of questions posed, the methods and every day routine.

Learning by doing: From the organisational side, we will reserve sufficient time and space for the students to work through some of the exercises and examples by their own.

The laguanges of the school will be Spanish and English. Students are expected to have some basic ability in both languages. The school is intended to be personal, non-bureaucratic, and spontaneous. The focus is on learning physics in a stress-free, cooperative atmosphere. Social programs will round-up the event.

Registration Fee: $2000 (Mexican Pesos). The registration covers lunch, coffee and accommodations. Please send us an email if your situation requires a waiver of these fees; we shall inform you shortly if it is possible. Students who arrange there own lodging can apply for a reduced inscription rate of $500 (Mexican Pesos).
