April 11-14, 2023

Welcome to the 50th Heidelberg Physics Graduate Days. The courses are open for advanced students, in particular those working on their Master's and doctoral theses. Our aim is to offer courses that broaden the physics knowledge of our students as well as to teach specialized techniques.

The courses are organised as parallel block lectures, with the morning lectures taking place from 9:30 to 12:30 and the afternoon lectures from 14:00 to 17:00, including coffee breaks. There is also a free lunch each day included in your registration. Note that each course runs every day for four days either in a morning or afternoon slot.

To take part in the 50th Graduate Days please register. (Registration opens during the last week of  term - calendar week 7.)

The Heidelberg Physics Graduate Days take place Im Neuenheimer Feld 226 and 227.

The flyer with the room distribution can be downloaded here.

The poster, with information on the courses, can be downloaded here.
