The purpose of this winter school is to provide introductory courses in a range of important and exciting topics in the field of theoretical particle physics and cosmology, including gravitational waves, scattering theory, integrability, black holes, axion physics, inflation, string theory and neutrino physics. The school will also bring together students and young postdocs across different fields, research institutions and countries. 


The school will start on Monday, January 15 and will end on Thursday, January 25. There will be no lecture on Saturday, January 20. The schedule of each day will be as follows:

  9:45-10:45: first lecture

12:15-14.00: lunch break  
14:00-15:00: study time

15:00-16:00: third lecture  
16:00-17:30: study time

Financial Support

Students and postdocs from Nordic and Baltic countries can apply for financial support covering accomodation and/or travel expenses. A short motivational paragraph is requested in the registration form (max 100 words). 


The school is primarily intended for PhD students and young postdocs. Advanced master students may also apply. In order to apply to the Nordita winter school, please fill out the application form (PhD and master students need to state the supervisor's name). Show that you are eligible to the school by providing keywords that describe your research interests (and optionally adding references to relevant papers).

Note that the registration deadline is November 1, 2023. We will inform you about the outcome of your application before the end of November.

Invited speakers should also fill out the registration form, but only the indicated sections.
