We are pleased to announce plans for the second “Summer School on Fundamental Neutron Physics,” which will be held at the National Institute for Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, MD June 22-26, 2009. The school will take place in parallel with the NCNR/NSF "Summer School on Methods and Applications of Neutron Spectroscopy”. The organizing committee is planning an extensive program of topics covering neutron technologies, ultracold neutrons, theoretical development, and an array of fundamental neutron physics experiments that probe the Standard Model and physics beyond the Standard Model.

The summer school is intended for graduate students working in fundamental neutron physics and related fields and those interested in post-doctoral work in the field. We anticipate that significant financial support will be available to graduate students, but the attendance may be limited.
