Welcome to the Graduate Days of CUI!

Programme for the Graduate Days 2018

The Graduate Days 2018 will take place from March 19 (Monday) to March 22 (Thursday).

The scientific block courses are organised as parallel block lectures, with the morning lectures taking place from 9:30 to 12:30 and the afternoon lectures from 14:00 to 15:30, including coffee breaks. Note that each course runs either in the morning or in the afternoon from Monday to Wednesday. On the other hand, the practical and soft skills workshops will take place only on Thursday from 9:30 to 17:00.

In addition to those courses, there will be a colloquium, which will take place on Tuesday, and an industry event on Wednesday. On Tuesday evening there will be a barbecue and on Wednesday evening finger food will be provided, which will be free to all participants.

The Graduate Days will be held at the Bahrenfeld campus (DESY), Luruper Chaussee 149, 22761 Hamburg, both in The Center for Free Electron Laser Science (CFEL, Bld. 99), the Institute for Laser Physics (ILP, Bld. 69), and the Center for Optical Quantum Technologies (ZOQ, Bld. 90). How to get to the venue, please see here.

The programme can be downloaded here: poster (A1, A2 and A4) and booklet.
