Central European Joint Programme
of Doctoral Studies in Theoretical Physics

School on Particle Physics, Gravity and Cosmology
Dubrovnik, 21 August - 2 September 2006

Scientific Programme

The School consists of level-up courses intended for PhD students, as well as updating courses for postdocs and researchers. In addition, a few propaedeutical crash courses will be organized to bridge the gaps in the attendance and to facilitate an active participation. The courses will be held on the blackboard. The audience is assumed to have at least a PhD student level either in phenomenological particle theory, in astroparticle physics or in field and string theory. One of the aims of the School is to bring together researchers of these different areas and to update them on one another's discipline.
