Scientific Program

The school will be held over two weeks. Each day will feature lectures from multiple speakers (roughly 5 hours of lectures per day, with the remaining time left for discussions and informal interactions). Each week, we will also have an open panel discussion where students can ask lecturers about PhD programs at international institutions, and academic and research careers.

We also plan to organize an optional online preparatory school the week before BCVSPIN-2023, where the organizers will cover the basics of particle physics and cosmology.

Please go to the BCVSPIN website ( for information regarding travel, accommodation, and other logistics.
