The RD51 MicroPattern Gaseous Detector School will take place from 27 November to 1 December 2023 at CERN. The school focuses on state-of-the-art MPGD technologies. Its programme comprises morning lectures by global experts in the field, which will give an overview of gas detector physics, MPGD technologies, simulation and modelling, readout approaches, manufacturing techniques and applications, as well as hands-on afternoon exercises on various technologies, with an emphasis on methodologies.

The school is targeted to PhD students and young scientists working on gaseous detectors or entering the field. Students are invited to present a poster with a short oral introduction during a dedicated session of the school. Thanks to the support from the RD51 Collaboration, registration is free for students. However, please note that accommodation, travel and other expenses have to be covered by the participants.

Applications for the school are open from now until 17 July 2023. Admission to the school is limited. The lecture sessions are open to the community and can be followed in-person or remotely via videoconference.
