This school will offer students and professionals working on radiation physics problems a beginner's introduction to the various functions and attributes of FLUKA, a general-purpose code for the Monte Carlo simulation of radiation transport in complex material geometries. The course will also introduce the functionalities of the completely revised user interface Flair3.have been installed under either Linux or Windows (WSL) and are up and running. Instructions will follow

The event is hosted online, from Monday September 21 (starting 3 PM, CEST) until Friday October 2 (ending at 7 PM).

Prior Knowledge

No particular experience with FLUKA or similar Monte-Carlo packages is required, however basic knowledge of LINUX/UNIX is necessary, as well as reasonably fluent use of a plain-text editor and the ability to navigate through a file tree. For newcomers, not only to FLUKA but also to Linux, we strongly recommend to have a look into a Linux tutorial (in particular sections 1 to 5 of the outline) in order to be able to profit at maximum from the FLUKA course.


Participants are expected to have an installation of FLUKA-4.0.1 and Flair 3.1-3 in working order.
