This school introduces the science of nanomechanical systems, a flourishing field of research. Nanomechanical systems are of interest both for their potential in terms of fundamental quantum physics as well as for applications in sensitive measurements, quantum information, and other areas. This Advanced School will recapitulate the foundations of nanomechanical systems and introduce the key concepts behind nano- and optomechanical technologies. The breadth of the field will be covered in six series of lectures delivered by internationally renowned experts. The pedagogical part of the school will be complemented by a series of about 20 invited presentations of state-of-the-art research. A crucial part of the school, in addition to the lectures and talks, will be the active contribution of the participants, which will be encouraged and fostered by several means: During the first week of the school, designated timeslots for tutorial classes will enable students to practice their skills in analytical as well as numerical methods, and will include problem solving and presentation of scientific results. The participants will work in small teams on research-type mini-projects.
