The summer school is a condensed matter physics education program that focuses on theoretical and experimental research in quantum many-body systems. The program is open to both Princeton and non-Princeton graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the sciences. Lectures will be of pedagogical aim and the program organization is conducted primarily by Princeton graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Participants can apply to present their research during a Poster Session.

The theme for 2022, "Hidden Correlations in Flat Bands" focused on the most exciting developments in strong interactions, topology, and superconductivity. Covering fundamental ideas as well as current work, the summer school prepared participants for research in the field of quantum materials.2022 was PSSCMP's 18th year, having its inaugural year in 2005 and included:
663 registered attendees (571 webinar and 92 in-person), 19 poster presenters, 18 lectures featuring 11 speakers

The in-person event location: Bowen Hall Auditorium, Princeton campus.
