The Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM) and Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS) co-sponsored the 4th annual Princeton summer school on condensed matter physics from August 11-14, 2008. The school took place in the newly renovated PCTS facilities in Jadwin Hall at Princeton University. Thanks to everybody who lectured and attended for a great school!
