Scientific Calendar Event

Starts 30 Nov 2023 04:00
Ends 2 Dec 2023 14:00
Universidad del Tolima, Ibagué, Colombia

This is the first school of the Colombian Network on Particle Physics. It will take place in Universidad del Tolima, in the city of Ibague, Colombia, from the 30th of November to the 2nd of December, prior to the COMHEP meeting, which will take place from the 4th to the 7th of December.

The timeline of 3 days will be divided into lectures and hands-on sessions where the students will choose between 3 projects to develop during the school, giving them the opportunity to explore different topics and learn from other areas in particle physics. Material will continue to be available to them after the school so they can continue the work after and maybe get more involved, should they be interested.


The main topics will be Detector Simulation, Monte Carlo simulations for the LHC experiments, and analysis of LHC open data.


How to apply 
Eligibility criteria: Advanced undergraduate physics students or postgraduate students. Prior knowledge of python and/or C++ programming languages. Funding will be available depending on demand.

Kindly submit your application here within 15 October 2023
Travel grants are only available within Colombia. Students will be selected according to an evaluation of the motivation letter and the academic records submitted.
