Program of the MERCUR Winter School 2016

Literatue Introduction

Our 1st MERCUR Winter School has been a great success in 2014.

In 2016, the 2nd MERCUR Winter School will take place at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef (Germany) from March 6th (Sunday, registration) to March 11th (Friday). We are looking forward to it because, once again, it is possible to put together a very promising program, with the support of many colleagues who are willing to give a talk at the School.
