All graduate students and postdocs in relevant areas of Physics are invited to apply to attend, a key feature of which will be the opportunity to interact not only with the lecturers, but to develop a lasting network of research relationships between peers. A full programme of lectures, poster sessions and a social programme will be provided for the duration of the School.

The School is being organised under the umbrella of Scottish Universities Summer Schools in Physics (SUSSP - SUSSP was established in 1960 by the four ancient Scottish Universities to contribute to the dissemination of advanced knowledge (in Physics) and the formation of contacts among scientists from different countries through the setting up of a series of annual summer schools of the highest international standard.

Applications are now open and both the online application form and further information are available at We hope to provide significant bursaries to enable as many applicants as possible to attend the SUSSP71. The deadline for applications eligible for bursaries is March 23rd 2015.
