The IFF Spring School in Jülich

The annual IFF Spring Schools were first established by the Institut für Festkörperforschung (IFF) in 1970. After an internal restructuring process within Forschungszentrum Jülich, they are now jointly coordinated by the Peter Grünberg Institute (PGI), the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS), the Institute of Complex Systems (ICS) and the Institute for Advanced Simulation (IAS). The Spring Schools allow students as well as early career scientists to gain a two-week insight into a current topic related to the research activities of the organizing institutes. These range from electronic systems, their phenomena and applications in information technology to biophysics and soft matter research, development and application of high-performance computing to understand complex systems, as well as the operation of neutron scattering instruments at national and international neutron sources.
