This is the third school in a series lectures and discussions held in 2005 and 2006 at the INFN ­Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati on the general theme of supersymmetric mechanics:

Based on the two previous meetings, two volumes were published. The first volume is published as Lecture Notes in Physics 698, Supersymmetric Mechanics ­ Vol. 1: Noncommutativity and Matrix Models, 2006 (ISBN-10 3-540-33313-4). The second one, published as Lecture Notes in Physics 701, Supersymmetric Mechanics ­ Vol. 2: The Attractor Mechanism and Space Time Singularities, 2006 (ISBN-10 3-540-34156-0).

All lectures are for beginners. Part of the afternoon sessions will be dedicated to training, solving of problems proposed in the lectures and collaboration. The number of participants is restricted to 40 people, on a first come first served basis. Registration should be done before15 May 2007, by sending a message to: On Thursday 21st, short presentations (20’) of recent original results will be given by attendees. Attendees wishing to present their results should send an abstract before 15 May 2007 to:

There is a 300 Euro fee (200 Euro reduced fee for PhD students), to be paid on the premises in cash only. The fee includes coffee and lunch breaks, a social dinner on Thursday 21st.
