Proceedings :

The proceedings of the school have been published in Nucl. Phys. B Proc. Suppl. 171 (2007). A list of the contributions can be accessed from the SPIRES services at the address Cargese 2006 proceeding contributions

Location :

The ESFSI will be held at the Institut d'Études Scientifiques de Cargèse. Cargèse is a pleasant village of considerable charm and historic interest
located 50 km north of Ajaccio, on the west coast of Corsica (France). The Institute is located 2 kms south of the village.

Applications :

The school will be open by invitation only to approximately 65 participants. Applications should be made through the web form before February 15, 2006.
