Summer schools on nanophotonics and nanoenergy

(Nanowerk News) The DFG-Center for Functional Nanostructures (CFN) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology has announced th dates for its two summer school events 2012. They will be held in the fields of nano-photonics (Sept. 10-13, 2012) and nano-energy (Sept. 14-17, 2012) - two main areas of research at the CFN.
Scientific exchange
Although the CFN Summer School was originally established to address advanced graduate students and postdocs, senior scientists wishing to broaden their knowledge in the fields of nano-energy and nano-photonics are welcome to attend.
To further scientific exchange and discussion, each participant is expected to present a poster describing his/her scientific background, research interests or current research project.
Course language is English.
All participants are expected to prepare a poster presentation. The poster should be roughly DIN A0 (841 x 1189 mm²) in size and "portrait" format. It is not expected that it fulfils the requirements of a scientific poster for a conference in terms of content and form. Its main purpose is to get acquainted with each other´s scientific background and to stimulate discussions. To this end you are welcome to provide information not only on your research but on your scientific interests, as well.
Since the posters will be on display for the entire course period, you might want to include a picture of yourself at the upper right-hand corner. This will make it easier for everyone to identify and contact participants with common interests during the course.
ECTS Credit Points
Provided that all lectures are attended and a poster is presented, the CFN will issue a certificate stating that the workload for each course is equivalent to 2 ECTS credit points. Please mark the check-box on the registration form if you need an ECTS certificate, and fill in your date and city of birth. Whether your university will accept these credit points as partial fulfillment of the requirements for your degree, however, depends on the regulations specified by your host institution.
