The QCD Master Class 2021 will take place on August 29 - September 11  2021 in Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer, a small village in Brittany (west of France) close to the city of Saint-Malo and the world famous Mont Saint-Michel. Five lectures in QCD, of approximately 10 hours each, will be given to 35 young researchers and faculty staff members.

The program of the QCD Master Class 2021 consists in lectures on three different topics each week, from Monday to Friday. The week-end in between the two weeks is left free.

Interested candidates should apply via the pre-registration form given here, after April 20. Deadline for application is fixed to June 15, 2021. The candidates are expected to apply for the complete duration of the school, with preferably arrival on August 29 (afternoon) and departure on September 11 (morning). The selected 35 participants will be contacted in order to process with the payment of the fee to confirm final registration.

The registration fee is fixed to 800 euros and includes the full board accommodation from August 29 (evening) to September 11 (morning). According to the rules applying to "CNRS Thematic Schools", fees are waived for CNRS participants. 

Distancing rules will be rigorously respected in the abbey (the lecture room reserved this year is for at least 100 participants, all bedrooms will be individual, distancing will also be respected in the dining room). The abbey is also optimal to find open-air spaces to safely wander around. The scientific program may be subject to adjustments in response to changes in the global health situation.

This event is supported by the ANR, CNRS (Thematic Schools), Subatech, Labex P2IO, and GDR QCD.
