5-8 March at CERN: 11th Inverted CERN School of Computing

The 11th edition of the “Inverted” CERN School of Computing (iCSC 2018) will take place at CERN from 5 to 8 March 2018 in the IT Auditorium (Room 31/3-004).

An excellent programme is planned, consisting of lectures and hands-on exercises selected from a range of proposals submitted by CSC 2017 students. You are not obliged to attend every lecture, indeed you can simply attend the lectures and exercises that interest you the most.

Attendance is free and open to everyone at CERN, and the event will be webcast for those who cannot attend in person.

Registration is not compulsory, but will allow you to enjoy coffee courtesy of the CSC, and obtain a hard copy of the booklet, which includes the lecture slides and notes (while stocks last).

About the iCSC
The Inverted Schools of Computing (iCSC) are part of an annual series of schools organised by the CERN School of Computing (CSC). The iCSC consists of lectures presented over a few days by former CSC students, providing advanced education in specialist topics. The Inverted School provides a platform for them to share their knowledge, turning the students into teachers.
