From Wednesday January 19th to Friday January 21st, in room 572-R-023 of the CERN training centre. Anyone understanding the room numbering scheme in this building, can safely skip this course.

Prerequisites

A good understanding of the physics of gas-based detectors and a working knowledge of Unix, ROOT and C++ are assumed.

Enrolment
