This one-day meeting is held primarily for newcomers to the field of experimental research at low temperatures. A series of talks are given by experts in the fields of cryogen handling, thermometry, measurement and control, and cryogenic techniques below 1 Kelvin. There is also an introduction to commercially available low temperature equipment. The basic methods are discussed along with useful tips on how to design experiments more specific to your own research. The talks are accompanied by an extensive set of notes for future reference.
