COVID-19 UPDATE (May 15th, 2020) : Meso School RESCHEDULED!

Due the current pandemic situation, we have decided to reschedule the Cargese Meso school.

It is now scheduled to take place from October 4th to October 15th, 2021. The school will still take place at the Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargese, with the same lecturers as originally planned.

Applications will thus open around March 2021. Our apologies to those of you who have already applied.

School of the GDR in Mesoscopic Physics

The GDR 2426 ("Mesoscopic Quantum Physics Research Group") school of mesoscopic physics will take place from Monday October 4th, 2021 to Friday October 15th, 2021 at the Institute of Scientific Studies of Cargèse (IESC, Corsica, France). 

The main goal of this Cargèse 2021 school, in the continuity of the Aussois 2005, Cargèse 2008, 2012 and 2016 schools, is to provide pedagogical courses and colloquia from world experts in a variety of topics in mesoscopic quantum physics. The participation of newcomers to the field (PhD, Postdoctoral researchers, CNRS researchers), from France and abroad, is encouraged.  

The registration fee for the school should not exceed 1000 euros (fees may be waived for registered CNRS staff and for some participants). Registration fees include accommodation, certain meals (mainly lunches) as well as shuttles between the airport and the IESC. But they do not include the trip to Corsica, nor the majority of diners. Applications will open around March 2021.

All participants in the school should plan to bring a poster of their research activities to present during one of the two poster sessions (see the "Post a poster" tab in the menu on the left).

The courses / colloquia will be in English.
