APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED
Welcome to the 2022 Asia-Europe-Pacific School of High-Energy Physics (AEPSHEP 2022). Please note that this School was originally scheduled to take place in October 2020 but had to be postponed to October 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are optimistic that it will be possible to hold the School this October. Nevertheless, there remain uncertainties relating to the evolution of the COVID pandemic and events in Ukraine and corresponding restrictions that could potentially affect participants from certain countries, or the organisation of the school in general. These matters will be kept under review and relevant information will be provided in case of significant developments.
The 2022 School will take place 5 - 18 October in Korea.
There will be about 33 lectures, each lasting about 90 minutes including time for questions. These will be complemented by parallel group discussion sessions most afternoons. There will be an evening poster session during which all students are invited to present their research work. Each discussion group will also perform a collaborative project in which they will choose and study in detail a scientific paper; a student representative of each group will present the group's work in a special evening session. The timetable will be available soon. The scientific programme can be found here.
Who can apply?
The purpose of the School is to provide young physicists with an opportunity to learn about recent advances in elementary-particle physics from world-leading researchers. It also aims to encourage communications among Asian, European and Pacific-region young researchers. The School provides High-Energy Physics courses from an experimental and phenomenological perspective, with a focus on accelerator-based programmes in Asia and Europe, and other related fields such as astro-particle physics and cosmological aspects of particle physics.
The programme of the School is at a level appropriate for PhD students in the field of experimental particle physics. Students working on phenomenology (if not too far from particle-physics experiment) may also be accepted. The School is open to junior post-docs (typically less than two years after completing their PhD), and also to advanced MSc students provided that their prior knowledge is comparable with that of the principal target audience so that they can benefit from the courses offered at the School. Up to 100 students are expected to attend each School.
Applications to attend the School are invited particularly from students from countries in the Asia-Pacific region and from Europe, although applications from other regions will also be considered.
