The Enrico Fermi International School of Physics aims to promote and disseminate up-to-date information on current developments in various fields of contemporary physics. It has built up a prestigious reputation as a high quality international school, where over the years many famous scientists, including some 24 Nobel Prize winners, have presented their lectures. So far, over 100 courses have been held covering an impressive range of disciplines and representing some of the most important topics in modern physics, e.g. the physics of the elementary constituents of matter, the scientific and technical developments of solid state and plasma physics, the structure and dynamical properties of atomic nuclei and the cosmological evolution of stars.
The Enrico Fermi International School thus plays an essential role in modern physics.
