CERN school for Ukrainian teachers

CernSchoolOur colleague Andrii Nagai gave a talk on Sensors for low light-level detection at the CERN school for Ukrainian teachers. The CERN schools for teachers aim to bring modern science into the classroom. With a variety of lectures, on-site visits, exhibitions, and hands-on workshops cutting-edge particle physics are introduced to the participants.The participants shall go back to their schools as ambassadors, who pass on the subject to the next generation of physicists, engineers, IT specialists...

In April the Ukrainian teachers had the possibility to visit CERN for several days with lectures in their native language. The lectures range from indroductory talks about CERN, accelarators and particle physics to neutrino physics, dark matter and low light-level detection. The program also includes visits to e.g. the Data Centre, the ATLAS Control Room, LEIR or the Synchrocyclotron and a Cloud Chamber workshop.

TESHEP summer school

bandeau V2 TES HEP 2018The 12th edition of the TESHEP summer school - Trans-European School for High-Energy Physics - will take place in Poltava, Ukraine on July 13-20, 2018.
The core lecture program addresses Experimental Particle Physics, Standard Model and Beyond, Cosmology, Statistics and Instrumentation.

The lectures are complemented by the practical sessions, discussion sessions and student-professor discussions. Students will present their projects during a dedicated conference at the end of the school. The practical sessions on Instrumentation are organised thanks to the support of the SENSE project.

Barcelona Techno Week 2018

TechnoWeekThe ICCUB and CERN organize a high-quality course on solid-state radiation detectors combined with laboratories, social events, a poster session and presentations from industry. The course covers from physics of interaction of radiation with matter, sensors and readout electronics to state-of-the-art reviews on radiation detection technologies and their applications.

The event will take place in Barcelona, from the 2nd to the 6th July 2018, and it is aimed at PhD students, researchers and industry professionals, working in related fields: particle detectors, astronomy, space, medical imaging, scientific instrumentation, material analysis, neutron imaging, process monitoring and control, etc.
