Organisatie / co-organisatie: Particle Physics Group

Korte beschrijving: Two week course at graduate student level in advanced particle physics, covering both theoretical and experimental aspects of the field.

BND Summer School in Particle Physics


Experimental high energy physicists preparing a PhD in particle physics, in particular during their first two years.

Course description:

The school follows an intensive schedule of roughly 60-70 hours of lectures and tutorials spread over 10 days. It contains a core theoretical programme covering 6+4 hours of Quantum Field Theory with tutorials, 8+4 hours of Quantum Chromo Dynamics with tutorials and a core experimental programme of 6 hours on the topic of Calorimetry Detectors. The core programme is supplemented by roughly 30 hours of topical lectures that vary from year to year. These will minimally include lattice QCD, cosmology, neutrino physics and heavy ion physics. Finally the programme will contain 12 hours of hands-on projects related to experiment design, literature study and computing/electronics.

The programme is finally supplemented with one or two off-topic evening lectures and a half day of social-cultural activities.


3 ECTS credits are awarded upon successful completion of the programme.
