The week before the 9th Symposium on Frequency Standards and Metrology there will be a summer school at the Gold Coast on Frequency Standards, Precision, and Quantum Measurements, for students, early career researchers, and those professionals who want to learn more about the subject. The school is limited to 50 participants, and there will be at least twelve tutorial-style lectures during the week, with half an hour of discussions after the tutorial.
