This event is organised by INFN, University of Sassari and by the Consorzio COMETA. The Seminar offers lectures to PHD students, medical physicists and young researchers working at Universities or Research Institutes.
The Seminar is organized in didactic units on software developed and used in fundamental and applied physics, theoretical and experimental. The lectures also include a full official basic course on the Geant4 Monte Carlo simulation toolkit. Lectures will cover all aspects of the toolkit from basic installation through advanced topics and will be interspersed with examples that build progressively more complex application, extensible to real space and medical use.
On the last day of the School, students will have the opportunity to test their learning achievements through a written exam. The successful outcome of the test will be reported on a written certificate for those interested, to be requested on arrival, at the registration desk. A simple attendance certificate will also be available on request. Staying at Hotel Porto Conte is mandatory for all the participants.
Registration is opened, a limited number of grants is available for young students wishing to attend the seminar.
The grant cover the registration fee and accomodation expenses only. No support for travel expenses is available.
The selected grant students are expected to give a brief talk on their scientific activity.
If you are interested and wish to apply, please complete the registration form and attach a Curriculm Vitae and an abstract on your scientific activity (in english and in PDF format).
