Programm GSS Summer School 2017

6TH - 9TH OF JUNE 2017

Between June 6 and June 9 the GSS Summer School 2017 takes place. The first two lecture days focus on the description of solvation with molecular simulations and surface sensitive nonlinear spectroscopy. Please see below for a list of confirmed speakers.

The third day will open up career options for PhD students including networking discussions with representatives from industry. 

On Friday, 9th of June the advanced module hands-on courses take place.
