V International Geant4 School

from to (Europe/Rome)
at Catania (Italy) ( Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (LNS-INFN) )
Via Santa Sofia 62, Catania (Italy)
Description
A five days hands-on Geant4 course organized by Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare will be held in Catania (Italy) from October 23rd to 27th, 2017Geant4 is a software toolkit, written in C ++, for simulating tracking of particles in the matter with the Monte Carlo approach. 
The software is developed and maintained by an international collaboration of scientists belonging to different institutions. Geant4 can be used for applications in high energy physics, astrophysics, medical physics, particle astrophysics and nuclear physics.
A section will be focused on all main aspects of the C++ basic programming.
The topics of the V International Geant4 School will cover both high energy/nuclear physics and medical applications. Lectures will cover all aspects of the Geant4 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. A special section will be focused on Geant4-DNA, an extension of the toolkit dedicated to the simulations and modeling of early biological damage induced by ionising radiation at the DNA scale.
The school is aimed at PhD students, medical physicists and young researchers working at universities or research institutes. 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.
Registration is opened, a maximum number of 50 participants will be admitted.
The deadline for the participation is September the 20
th and the fee is 175 
Participants are recommended to bring their own laptop with (preferably) Linux or OSX operating system.Those who have a Windows operating system will be able to connect, via ssh, to specific desktop machine. Moreover, a virtual machine with a CentOS and a ready-to-use Geant4 installation, will be provided in the next weeks, together with the installation instructions.
