The fourth Asia-Europe-Pacific School of High-Energy Physics, AEPSHEP2018 (2018.aepshep.org), to be held in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, 12-25 September 2018, is open for applications (deadline 1 April 2018). AEPSHEP is held every second year, hosted in countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The first three Schools in the series were held in Fukuoka, Japan, in 2012, in Puri, India, in 2014, and near Beijing, China, in 2016.
Applications to attend the School are invited particularly from students from countries in the Asia-Pacific region and from Europe, although applications from other regions will also be considered. The programme of the school will be at a level appropriate for PhD students in experimental particle physics. It is anticipated that students working on phenomenology (if not too far from particle-physics experiment) will also be accepted. The School is open to junior post-docs (typically less than two years after completing their PhD), and also advanced MSc students provided their prior knowledge is comparable with that of the principal target audience so that they can benefit from the courses offered at the School.
Wherever possible participants are expected to obtain funding for the fee as well as their travel from their home countries. However, some sponsorship will be available for a limited number of students from countries with developing programmes in particle physics. Eligible students are therefore encouraged to apply even if they do not expect to obtain funding from their home institute to attend the School.
