The school is intended to provide graduate and undergraduate students, theoretical background and complementary practical demonstrations in the use of different detector technologies and data acquisition systems used in Particle Physics, including applications to research in Medicine and Engineering. This school will be virtual and will run for three days, with lectures in the morning and virtual interactive laboratory demonstrations in the afternoon. There will be a daily session for short presentations, either in English or Spanish (10 to 15 minutes) of selected contributions. Application for admission is free of charge. Most of the lectures will be delivered in Spanish (slides in English) with some few exceptions.
Opening Day for applications: AUGUST 23 2021
