The main objectives of the hadron collider physics school (HASCO) are to provide an overview of elementary particle physics, with particular focus on hadron collider physics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This includes lectures and tutorials on theoretical foundations of the Standard Model of elementary particle physics as well as modern, experimental techniques to test it. Furthermore, a focus is placed on statistical data analysis and an introduction to the software package ROOT as well as pp-physics at 13 or 14 TeV. In addition, students will have the opportunity to discuss state of the art measurements and results with senior scientists in the field.
The school targets mainly Master of Science students, while advanced Bachelor students or early PhD students are also
eligible. Please contact your local advisor for further details.
Students from all universities are encouraged to apply at http://hasco.uni-goettingen.de
Extended Application deadline: 17 April 2018
The programme is still preliminary, but the dates of the school itself are fixed.
