Applications are now open for the 42nd CERN School of Computing. The CSC 2019 will take place on September 15-28 in the beautiful city of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The School is organised in collaboration with Babeș-Bolyai University (UBB) together with Politehnica University of Bucharest (UPB).

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 ECTS points from UBB + UPB.

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 Romania's great cultural, historical and natural attractions, and profit from Cluj-Napoca’s location in heart of the Transylvania region.

The CSC 2019 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.

Apply now here. The deadline is May 10 – places are limited!
