Program 
September 4: Arrival/Registration day, September 5: 1^{st} day of scientific events, September 15: Mid Term Meeting of the ITN.
The school consists of 40 lecture hours (the equivalent of 10 full lecture courses), a discussion session with lecturers and short
presentations by the students. A rough plan is: 6 hours on collider physics, data analysis and the status of experimental searches,
4 hours on flavor physics, 4 hours on SUSY, 4 hours extra dimensions and braneworlds, 4 hours on electroweak symmetry breaking,
4 hours on astroparticle physics and cosmology, 8 hours on string theory and string model building, 4 hours on applications of AdS/CFT
and 4 hours on advanced mathematical techniques in physics.

Registration Fee 
There is a fee of 250 euros, to be paid in
cash upon arrival in Corfu. The fee is waived if
the lowcost
package is chosen. People funded by the ITN, Marie Curie Initial Training Network "Unification in the LHC era", do not pay a conference fee.
