For the bank transfer option, please contact the organizers and arrangements will be made.
Registration is considered complete only after proof of payment is received. In case of anticipated payment delay, contact the organizers as soon as possible.

No particular experience with FLUKA or similar Monte-Carlo packages is required, however basic knowledge of LINUX/UNIX is necessary, as well as reasonably fluent use of a plain-text editor and the ability to navigate through a file tree. For newcomers, not only to FLUKA but also to Linux, we strongly recommend to have a look into a Linux tutorial in order to be able to profit at maximum from the FLUKA course.
Participants are welcome to come with their own laptop, having verified beforehand that an up-to-date version of FLUKA and Flair is up and running. Instructions will follow.
Rental laptops with the course material preinstalled can be made available upon requesting so at registrationt ime for an additional fee (see above).
