MaNEP Summer school
6 -11 September 2004
Saas - Fee

This summer school is dedicated to all the PhD students and Post-Docs working in the research and development of new materials with novel electronic properties. Priority will be given to students working within an institution related to MaNEP, but participants from other institutions (Swiss or foreign countries) will be gladly accepted if there is available place.

The summer school will start on Monday September 6th at 14 pm and end on Saturday September 11th at 12 pm. The program of this school will consist of basic courses of 6 hours and 6 advanced courses of 2 hours.

This school will be held at Saas Fee, a beautiful Valais village located at almost 1800 meters and surrounded by a fantastic chain of mountain culminating up to 4000 meters. This village has the particularity to have no traffic car. A large car park is available at the entry of the village, but the daily price is such that we strongly recommend to the participants to use public transportation. The easiest way to reach Saas-Fee is to take the train up to Brig and then to catch a postal bus for Saas Fee in front of the Brig train station. For the train and bus timetable please take a look at the CFF web site

The participants will be lodged either at the hotel ALLALIN or in several two bedrooms apartments close to the hotel. The school will be held at the Congress Centre Steinmatte. To contact the hotel or the congress Centre the adress is:
