Physics by the Lake is the UK national summer school on theoretical condensed matter physics, aimed at PhD students towards the end of their first year. While geared towards UK students, we welcome participants worldwide.
It is organised by the Institute of Physics (IOP) Theory of Condensed Matter group. It consists of two weeks of high-quality lecture courses by experts in the field, as well as tutorials to give thorough training in solving real problems. There is also a series of after-dinner seminars.
The 2023 Physics by the Lake summer school will take place at the University of Stirling from 14-25 August 2023.
