India has joined the International Particle Physics Outreach Group (IPPOG) through NISER. The details about this group and its program can be found at -
One of the flagship programs of this group is to organize Masterclasses at the level of +2.
NISER CMRP is organizing one day Masterclass on "Particle Therapy" to be held on Friday, 31st March 2023 from 10 AM to 5.00 PM in Lecture Hall-1 near central Library, NISER.
Please make sure you have the requisites for the hands-on session as mentioned below.
There will be a few presentations/animations/videos shown in the morning session and in the afternoon session (after lunch), we plan to conduct a hands-on session using a software related to the treatment planning done in hospitals to treat cancer patients using radiation. The idea of the workshop is to introduce participants to the field of radiation/particle therapy and nuclear and particle physics in general. The basic science we do in particle and nuclear physics has this very important societal application.

The registration deadline is 17th March 2023. There are a limited number of seats kindly hurry up and register.

Laptop/computer required to use the Matrad software (Treatment planning):
Tutorials/hands-on sessions can be done with systems starting with 2GB RAM, however, it is recommended to use 8GB RAM or more and a 64-bit computer for: Windows, Linux & Mac (32-bit OS is not supported). The software installation steps are explained in details over here;
