Basic knowledge of the C++ computing language and a private laptop. A ready-for-the-use Virtual Machine (CentOs7) has been prepared and can be downloaded from this link. (8 GB). The VM includes a working installation of Geant4 10.4, compiled with a few commonly-used graphical drivers, of ROOT (and more). Once the VM is unpacked (total size about 20 GB), it can be run by using VirtualBox. VirtualBox is a freeware software available for MacOS, Windows and some flavours of Linux: it can be downloaded from https://www.virtualbox.org. The credentials to access the VM are user/user (administrator is root/infn2018, to be used with care). All students are invited to download the VM well before the course and to give it a try. A local instance of the VM will be provided as a last-chance solution, for students having a Linux laptop not compatible with VirtualBox.
