The PNPI Schools on CONDENSED STATE PHYSICS are traditionally carried out once in every two years. The last School was in 2002. The aim of the Schools is the overview of the last highlights in the PHYSICS of CONDENSED STATE to get acquainted the specialists working in this area with these problems. The special attention will be attracted to the problems to be studied by neutron scattering methods. Scientists from the different scientific centres (such as JINR, Kurchatov Institute, MPI of UrD RAS etc.) are systematically taking part in the Schools.
