XV Seminar on Software for Nuclear, Subnuclear and Applied Physics

from to (Europe/Rome)
Description
This event is organised by INFN, University of Sassari and by the Centro Siciliano di Fisica Nucleare e Struttura della Materia. 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 Medical Physics.

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.



Registration is opened, a maximum number of 45 participants will be admitted.
The deadline for the participation is May the 20
th and the fee is 200 

 

A limited number of grants are available. They cover fee and accommodation expenses only. No support for travel expenses is available. 

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.

 
Staying at Hotel Porto Conte is mandatory for all the participants.
