III Uniandes Particle Detector School

from to (America/Bogota)
at Universidad de los Andes
Description The school is intended to give hands-on training to Colombian graduate and undergraduate students in different detector technologies used in Particle Physics, including applications to other areas. The school will run for one week, with lectures in the morning and laboratory sessions in the afternoon. There will be a poster session for selected contributions. Application for admission is free of charge. A maximum of 40 participants will be admitted.

Opening Day for applications: June 1st 2016
Deadline for applications: EXTENDED TO August 15th 2016

Opening day for poster abstract submission: August 1st 2016
Deadline for poster abstract submission and modification: September 18th 2016

Goals of the III UNIANDES PARTICLE DETECTOR SCHOOL
  • To train Colombian students in the area of radiation detectors and their applications.
  • To stimulate the development of experimental particle physics in Colombia.
  • To promote multidisciplinary applications of particle detectors.
  • To motivate students to work in particle detector research.
