The Swiss Institute for Particle Physics (CHIPP) has been founded in
order to coordinate both the research as well as the outreach and
education activities of the Swiss Institutes involved in Particle and
Astro-Particle Physics. A first step towards coordinated education
activities was the organization of the very first CHIPP PhD school in
January 2008 in Naefels, Glarus. More editions followed in January
in Ascona, Leukerbad and Engelberg. Motivated by the success of these schools, CHIPP will organize a fifth edition.
