Students to Students Split Summer School is organized by students of the Elite-MSc course "Theoretical and Mathematical Physics" at LMU and TU Munich in collaboration with the University of Split. The main idea behind this unique project is that, as the name implies, students teach students. By setting lecturers and students on the same level we do not only improve the mutual understanding, but furthermore allow for more vivid discussions and make the advantages of international cooperation in science available to students.
The talks and discussions that will form the School can roughly be classified into three topics:
After we dealt with the interplay of mathematical and theoretical physics last year, the School in 2018 will adress the interplay of theoretical and experimental physics, in particular in the field of Quantum Field Theory and Particle Physics. Thereby we will cover not only basics, allowing it also advanced Bachelor and ongoing Master students of theoretical as well as experimental physics to take part, but also forge a brigde to current research. To enhance the dialogue between the particiants from both experimental and theoretical physics and to encourage them to think outside their used patterns by handling problems outside of their specialization, discussions will play a huge role in the School of 2018. To support the participants in their efforts to form an international network, the Summer School contains many additional activites outside the lecture hall. Not only does the beauty of Split urge all visitors to come together and deepen their new contacts while enjoying a traditional dinner together in the ancient center, also the surroundig nature creates an atmosphere which helps the mind to stay open for new ideas.
Confirmed guest lecturers:
Research interests: Higgs boson physics, experimental high energy physics
Research interests: Higgs properties measurements in the "golden channel”, High Granularity Calorimeter (HGCal), Very Front end Electronics (VFE), CMS upgrade, Electron reconstruction and efficiency measurements in the CMS
Research interests: Antimatter, Detector physics
The second round of registration is now open. If you experience some difficulties with the registration form, please contact us on our e-mail adress: email@example.com
There is a participation fee of 20 Euro. The information about the payment will be included in the acceptance e-mail.

Split is the second largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia. It is also one of the oldest cities in the region, as it was founded in the 3rd or 2nd century BCE as the Greek colony of Aspfialathos. However, the first permanent resident of Split was Roman Emperor Diocletian. In 305 BCE he built his famous Diocletians Palace as a place to spend his retirement. The site was most likely chosen due to being near to Salona, the capital of the province of Dalmatia at that time, but also having a secure port and a more immediate access to the open sea in the case of an attack. After the Romans abandoned the site, the Palace remained empty for several centuries. In the 7th century, nearby residents headed to the walled palace in an efort to escape invading Avars. Since then the palace has been occupied, with residents making their homes and businesses within the palace basement and directly in its walls. Today the palace is filed with shops and restaurants. Split is also famous for its beaches. There are many beaches in Split, ranging from sandy to pebble ones. Most of the beaches are southeast of Split's harbor, all the way to Podstrana village. Others are at the foot of Marjan hill, mostly rocky, bordered by a pine forest and with good local bus connections. In nearly all Split beaches the sea water is very clean and calm, without tides, under water currents or high waves. The sea temperature is comfortably warm from mid May to mid October.
Students to Students Summer School will take place at the building of Faculty of Science in Split. Accommodation of participants of the school will be organized at the students dormitory which is located at university campus.
There are many ways to reach Split: Within 40 minutes by bus, one can reach the citys airport. Most of the information can be found here: http://www.split-airport.hr/index.php?lang=en There is everyday relation Ancona(Italy) - Split by ferry during the summer.
