Hadron collider experiments have played a crucial role in particle-physics discoveries and are currently the main tool for exploring TeV scale physics. The ongoing third run of the LHC will deliver an unprecedented wealth of data at a higher energy than previous runs and with improved detector capabilities. This promises to continue the successes of the LHC physics program, opening novel possibilities for searches for new physics, precision measurements such as the properties of the Higgs boson, as well as detailed studies of the flavour sector and heavy-ion physics.
To realise the full potential of these developments, CERN and Fermilab are jointly offering a series of "Hadron Collider Physics Summer Schools", to prepare young researchers for these exciting times. The school has alternated between CERN and Fermilab, and will return to CERN for the eighteenth edition. You can find all the details about this year’s edition at: https://indico.cern.ch/e/hcpss2023.
The CERN-Fermilab Hadron Collider Physics Summer School is an advanced school targeted particularly at young postdocs and senior PhD students working towards the completion of their thesis project, in both experimental HEP and phenomenology. Other schools, such as the CERN European School of High Energy Physics, may provide more appropriate training for students in experimental HEP who are working towards their PhDs.
Calendar and details
Mark your calendar for 22-31 August 2023, when CERN will welcome accepted students to the 18th joint CERN-Fermilab Hadron Collider Physics Summer School. The School will include 9 days of lectures and discussions, with one free day in the middle of the period.
Limited scholarship funds will be available to support some participants.
Updates, application procedures and more details are available at: https://indico.cern.ch/e/hcpss2023. The deadline for applications and reference letters is 31 March 2023.
