# The Geilo Schools

The Physics department at IFE has been the organizer of biannual Geilo Schools at Bardøla Høyfjellshotell, Geilo, Norway since 1971.

The purpose of these schools has been to present in a pedagogical manner the recent advances in the physics of hard and soft condensed matter with emphasis on phase transitions and dynamics. Altogether, more than 1500 students from around 30 different countries have participated in these schools.

The proceedings of these schools have been published.
