UPDATE (11 April 2022):
The European School in Israel was originally planned for November 2021 but had to be postponed to May 2022 due to the Covid pandemic. In line with the CERN Council’s decisions following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the European School of HEP has been further postponed. The revised dates for the School are Wednesday 30 November (arrivals) to Tuesday 13 December (departures), 2022. The organisational arrangements will be determined in due course and the School will take place irrespective of these. Please note that the students have already been selected and the applications process is closed.
The students who have been selected for the School will be informed as soon as new information becomes available about practical and organisational arrangements.
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. The programme will include a short course on science communications and outreach. In addition, there will be group project work based on an outreach theme. The timetable will be available soon. The scientific programme can be found here.
Who can apply?
The European School is targeted particularly at students in experimental HEP who are in the final years of work towards their PhDs. Other schools, such as the CERN-FNAL Hadron Collider School may provide more appropriate training for young postdocs in experimental HEP, PhD students who have already attended the European School, and senior PhD students in HEP phenomenology. It should be noted that some pre-knowledge of the subjects is necessary in order to be able to profit fully from the lecture courses.
Demand for attendance at the European Schools exceeds the number of available places, so a competitive selection is made. Preference is given to students who have connections with CERN and JINR Member States either because of their nationality, or because of their institutional affiliation, or because they are involved in an experimental programme at a laboratory located in one of the Member States. Nevertheless, applications from other geographical areas will be considered. One or two students from developing countries could be considered for financial support.
