International Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Physics School

The school "Diffractive and electromagnetic processes at high energies" is held in Bad Honnef,  August 17 - 21, 2015. Applications from students and postdocs are encouraged. The school programme consists of invited talks of the HERA, RHIC, TEVATRON and CERN programmes, invited lectures and talks contributed by the participants .

This school is generously funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation.
