The PSI summer school on condensed matter research has a long standing tradition. Originally inaugurated in 1993 as a summer school on neutron scattering in Zuoz/Switzerland the type of the schools was extended in 2002 called ‘PSI summer school on condensed matter research’. From then on it covered not only the neutron as a probe (SINQ) but also the two other methods hosted at the PSI large user facilities, i.e. synchrotron X-rays (SLS) and muons (SμS).

Each year the school pays attention to a special topic like ‘magnetic phenomena’ (2010), ‘phase transitions’ (2011) or 'imaging life and matter' (2012). The PSI summer schools are open to the national and non-national scientific community and the language of the school is English.
