Open Call for IFT Programs in 2016-17


The IFT UAM-CSIC Madrid is glad to announce the Open Call for IFT Programs in Particle Physics, Astroparticles and Cosmology, for the Academic Year 2016-2017.


Each program is planned to last up to three weeks and to focus on topics of timely interest in the field, with a distribution of seminars and discussion sessions determined by the organizers. Participants should be encouraged to attend the program for at least one week. This program is funded by the Severo Ochoa Excellence Award.
