Where and When?
The Linnaeus Summer School in Nanoscience will take place August 19-24, 2007 at Örestrand outside Höganäs, Sweden. Arrival is expected on Sunday evening, August 19, and the school ends after supper on Friday, August 24.

Who is it for?
The school is aimed for graduate students in experimental as well as in theoretical nanophysics. The School is jointly organized by the Linnaeus projects in Lund and in Göteborg.
