Accommodation

Please be aware that unfortunately, scammers sometimes approach participants claiming to be able to provide accommodation and asking for credit card details. Please do not give this information to them. For invited speakers and also successful applicants, organazers will always be in touch via email regarding accommodation. If you are in any doubt about the legitimacy of an approach, please get in contact with the organizers. quantum.connections@fysik.su.se

Application

The intended audience is PhD students and junior researchers in quantum phenomena and condensed matter physics.

You apply to the Quantum Connections School in two steps:

  1. Fill in the APPLICATION FORM in the menu to the left
  2. Ask your supervisor or another reference person to send a recommendation letter via e-mail to:quantum.connections@fysik.su.se. The subject line should contain: "QC-2019" + "name of the applicant".

Both steps must be completed by 12 April 2019.

You will be informed by the organizers shortly after the application deadline whether your application has been approved or not. Due to space restrictions, the total number of participants is strictly limited.

There is no registration fee. We will cover local expenses (housing, meals, airport transfer) for non local participants during the school. Participants cover their own travel expenses.
