Unfortunately, due to the on-going Covid19 spread in Europe, we have been forced to cancel this event. We apologise for this and are looking forward to organising this school in 2021.





The inaugural edition of the Baltic School of High-Energy Physics and Accelerator Technologies (HEP&AT) will be hosted by the Riga Technical University (RTU) and held in a sea-side camping "Ronīši" in Klapkalnciems, Latvia, approximately 50 km west of Riga.

The school will focus on both the fundamental aspects of high-energy physics and the cutting research in the field today. In addition, the school will also cover both the basic principles and the current cutting edge technologies of particle accelerators, as well as their applications.

The lectures will be covered by prominent lecturers:
- Prof., Dr. Jonathan Richard Ellis (King's College London)
- Prof., Dr. Yuri Dokshiter (Sorbonne Université)
- Prof., Dr. Matteo Cacciari (Univeristé de Paris)
- Dr. Maurizio Vretenar (CERN)

The school is organised by the CERN Baltic Group, a collaboration of eight higher education and research institutions in the Baltic states, and is supported by CERN. Furthermore, this school is supported and partially funded by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST), particularly by COST Action CA16201 - PARTICLEFACE.

Precise timetable, more details and registration procedures will be made available shortly.

Please note that there are no specific registration fees for this school. PhD students can expect the cost of their travel and accommodation to be reimbursed by COST funding from CA16201 ( In order to have the above costs reimbursed, the participants (PhD students and postdoctoral) will have to register with COST and an attendance register for the school will be taken. For masters' students an alternative cost covering arrangement will be sought on an individual basis and could include these being covered by the students themselves or their institution.The participants can also expect light lunches, coffee breaks, one school dinner and the transfer between the location of the school and Riga central bus station to be included at no extra cost.

The accommodation at the camping will be centrally organised and successful applicants will be informed on the details for the payment of the accommodation costs in due course.

The number of places in this school is limited; in the case of high demand further accommodation and cost covering solutions will be sought. In such a case, the preference will be given to the local attendees and those who are COST funding eligible.


The registration deadline has been extended to 5pm CEST on the 14th of August


The arrangements for completing the payment for the accommodation will be given to the successful candidates in due course.
