Applications are now open for the 43rd CERN School of Computing. The CSC 2020 will take place from 23 August to 5 September 2020 in the beautiful city of Krakow, Poland. The School is organised in collaboration with the AGH University of Science and Technology, together with the Institute of Nuclear Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences (IFJ PAN).

The CSC is not a conference but a true summer university. The two-week programme consists of more than 50 hours of lectures and hands-on exercises, covering three main themes: physics computing, software engineering and data technologies. As with every CSC, the programme is audited by the hosting universities, and students that pass the final optional exam will receive a diploma from CSC, as well as 6 ECTS credits from AGH.

However, it's not all study; the social and sport programme is also a vital part of the School. We will have ample opportunities to explore and experience some of the great cultural, historical and natural attractions of Krakow and its region.

The CSC 2020 is aimed at postgraduate engineers and scientists, working at CERN or at other research institutes, with experience in particle physics, in computing or in related fields. We welcome applications from all nationalities, and encourage all qualified persons to apply. Limited financial support may be available.

The deadline for applications is April 5 – places are limited!
