Monte Carlo simulations find widespread applications in all areas of modern research. They allow simulation of beam losses in high energy accelerators, studies into traffic flow in cities, as well as optimization of treatment planning in cancer therapy.

This School will cover the fundamentals of Monte Carlo simulations, including geometry definition, material assignment, analysis, dose calculations, an overview of different solvers and post processors, as well as data visualization tools. Participants will be familiarized with this areas on the specific example of the FLUKA code through lectures and hands-on training classes.

Registration deadline: 4th October 2017
