Summer School within the framework of the EU project LOTHERM has the goal to give an up-to-date introduction and overview of experimental techniques and theoretical approaches as well as results concerning the challenging physics of quantum spin systems.

The School is primarily devoted to PhD students and young researchers working and interested in the subject but is expected to be stimulating also for senior experts.
Applications outside the LOTHERM project are welcome and participants will be able to present also their contribution in the poster session.
