The 15th MCnet school and 62nd Cracow School of Theoretical Physics will be held in Zakopane, near Cracow, in Poland.

The school provides a five day course of training in the physics and techniques used in modern Monte Carlo event generators via a series of lectures, practical sessions, and discussions with event-generator authors. The school is aimed at advanced doctoral students and early-career postdocs.

Our core sessions comprise a series of introductory lectures on the physics of event generators, further lectures on a wider range of associated topics, a series of hands-on tutorials using all of the MCnet event generators for LHC physics, and evening discussion sessions with Monte Carlo authors.

The full list of lectures is:

  • Introduction to Event Generators - Leif LÖNNBLAD (Lund University)
  • Parton Shower, Matching and Merging - Simon PLÄTZER (University of Graz)
  • The future and challenges of HEP - Michelangelo MANGANO (CERN)
  • Aspects of the EW Standard Model - Jonas LINDERT (The University of Sussex)
  • Monte Carlo simulation of FCCee physics - Staszek JADACH (IFJ PAN Krakow)
  • Model-independent measurements - Jon BUTTERWORTH (University College London)
  • Highlights from Run 2 of the LHC - Pawel BRÜCKMAN DE RENSTROM (IFJ PAN Krakow)
  • Machine Learning in HEP - Ramon WINTERHALDER (CP3, Louvain-la-Neuve)
  • Industrial applications - Albrecht KYRIELEIS, (Jacobs Manchester)


  • Tutorial coordinator - Christian GUTSCHOW  (University College London)
