Coronavirus: This event will now take place online. No classes will be offered in Prague - participants will be invited to connect remotely. Details will be provided by email. (9 March 2020)

Antimatter experiments give insight into some of the most fundamental questions in science. They allow probing symmetries and interactions in unprecedented detail.

This international school will take place in the 'City of a Hundred Spires' Prague in the Czech Republic from 23-27 March 2020. Lectures and topical talks will be presented by world-leading physicists. They will present the latest results in theoretical and experimental antimatter studies along with wider research in accelerator science and particle physics. All school participants will get the opportunity to present their own work in the form of posters. Social events, an excursion to ELI Beamlines, and a public talk on antimatter research will complement the programme.

The school is organized in partnership with FOTON and Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
