Geneva is co-hosting the annual doctoral school on Quantum Field Theory, Strings and Gravity, aiming to provide first-year PhD students in string theory with advanced courses that help bridge the gap between Master-level courses and the most recent advances in the field. The 2015 program is spread over three locations: Amsterdam, Paris, and Geneva.
The Swiss part of the school will take place from 30 of November to 18 of December 2015. For full consideration, students should register before the 20 of August.

Amsterdam: 2 - 20 November 2015
Geneva: 30 November to 18 December 2015
