The applications deadline has been extended to  30 November 2018

If necessary, use "N/A" for fields that are not applicable.

Conditions for Participation

The basic aim of the School is to teach various aspects of high-energy physics, and especially theoretical physics, primarily to postgraduates in experimental particle physics, about one year from submitting their Ph.D. theses. However, a few Latin-American postdoctoral students in experimental high-energy physics, and also students in theoretical physics, working in particular in particle-physics phenomenology, may be accepted, assuming their background knowledge in theoretical physics is of approximately the same level as the experimental Ph.D. students. This may include students working towards a Masters degree or equivalent qualification.

Most of the students are expected to come from Latin-American countries, but the School is open to participants of all nationalities and typically about a quarter of those attending come from Europe and North America.


The application form for the 2019 CERN Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics should be completed and sent as soon as possible. The application includes a 100-word summary of the student's current work that will be taken into consideration in the selection process.

The submission of the completed application form must be accompanied in parallel by a letter of reference and ranking from the student's professor or supervisor (signed and dated with letterhead of referee's institution). Applications without a reference letter will not be considered. The letter should be sent to Kate Ross, the Schools Administrator ( The letter should be scanned and sent via email.

Please note that the letter of recommendation from the professor or supervisor should include a ranking of the candidate relative to other students at a similar stage in their careers.

Candidates should ensure that their application form and the letter of reference reach the Schools Administrator by 30 November 2018.

The selection of the students will be made by members of the International Organizing Committee together with the Local Director. All applicants will be informed in December whether or not they have been selected.
