The week before the 9th Symposium on Frequency Standards and Metrology we are presenting a summer school at the Gold Coast on Frequency Standards, Precision, and Quantum Measurements, for students, early career researchers, and those professionals who want to learn more about the subject. The school is NOW FULL limited to 50 participants, and there will be twelve tutorial-style lectures during the week, with half an hour of discussions after the tutorial.

Details: https://www.qdmlab.com/9fsm2023/summer-school

The prerequisite is that you are an HDR student or ECR  working in the field or a closely related field. The registration fee will be $350 (some exemptions apply if you are a member of the IEEE or EQUS)

$350 payment for registration can be made at: https://payments.uwa.edu.au/SummerSchool

Registrations are closed, as is now at capacity.
