The Society of Physics Students Migacz, University of Wroclaw Faculty of Physics and Astronomy are pleased to announce the Winter Kindergarten of Theoretical Physics 2014 which will take place in Karpacz, Poland, from March 2nd to 9th (Sunday–Sunday), 2014. It will be organized in partnership with the well-known Winter School of Theoretical Physics.
The Kindergarten is a week-long conference designed for undergraduate and master students (PhD students are encouraged to take part in the 50th School of Theoretical Physics). The programme provides participants with lectures for every level of knowledge, including lectures given by special guests from the School of Theoretical Physics. Also all lectures of the School are opened for participants of the Kindergarten.
Students can participate actively either by giving a fifteen-minutes-long speech or a lecture lasting up to one hour.
Short speeches are recommended for younger students, who are willing to present their current projects or scientific interests. Apart from that there will be a poster session, with obligatory three-minute presentation about the poster’s topic.
This year Kindergarten is expanding to a new area – computational physics. It is a branch of science, where Physics meets computers and numerical methods. Therefore we invite you to take part in lectures and workshops devoted especially to this subject.
On the other hand, the scientific classes will be interspersed with skiing, snowboarding and mountain trips.
Kindergarten’s participants are strongly encouraged to prepare their own lectures or posters.
The Winter Kindergarten of Theoretical Physics 2014 will be held on March 2-9, 2014 in Krucze Skały resort in Karpacz (50° 46′ 10.80″ N, 15° 46′ 2.97″ E).
