The School of Excellence in Detector and Instrumentation Technologies was created to ensure researchers entering the field today get the hands-on experience they need to successfully further their careers. http://detectors.fnal.gov/EDIT2012/
Batavia, IL, USA
The 2012 EDIT School (EDIT 2012) will be hosted by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, IL, USA. EDIT 2012 is the second in a new series of international schools on detector and instrumentation technologies. The EDIT School, started at CERN in Geneve, Switzerland, in 2011 (EDIT 2011). EDIT is a School of Excellence devoted to young researchers, in their graduate studies or in their first year as a post doc, seeking to acquire a deeper knowledge on the major aspects of detectors and instrumentation technologies. This goal is achieved by providing a diversified program that integrates topical academic courses with hands-on laboratories. The practice-oriented approach of the school will be particularly profitable for physicists with limited hardware experience, as they can explore the performance and limitations of the technologies which are used in state-of-the-art experiments. Participants’ understanding of technologies will be extended beyond their immediate circle to a broader view, favoring strong skills in understanding the operation of Detectors and fostering innovative ideas on R&D and data interpretation. A total of 64 students will be accepted to the 2012 EDIT school, applications will be accepted soon. There is no registration fee for accepted applicants, but you or your institute will be liable for any other expenses (travel, accommodation and meals).
