This year the School will cover the following topics:

* Low dimensional materials: from design, characterization to applications
- design, synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials
- coatings, multilayers, thin films, nanoparticles
- nanopatterning – pre- and post-growth processing, self-assembly and self-organization
- biological applications of nanostructured materials and nanoscaled magnetoelectronics
* Biophysics and medical applications
- DNA, cell and tissue damage
- influence of external factors on cells and tissues properties
- biofilms and biomaterials, bio-markers and bio-sensors
- molecular and intercellular interactions
* Environment and protection
- photosynthesis
- heavy metal stress, pollution, corrosion
- protection mechanisms evolved by living organisms
- monitoring and protection
- renewable sources of energy

According to School tradition the research on the above topics was performed using nuclear, ion beam and other techniques in particular: Mossbauer spectroscopy, Perturbed Angular Correlations, PIXE, Channeling, RBS, Synchrotron Radiation X-ray Fluorescence, XANES, InfraRed Spectroscopy, and Atomic Force Microscopy. However, this time the other techniques are also welcomed. The School program is directed to students and young scientists to give them the opportunity to present their work, exchange their experience and to discuss the scientific problems with experienced lecturers. The scientific program will cover a broad range of topics in invited talks (45 minutes) and seminars (20 minutes).
