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 a 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.
This year the school will host a cycle of seminars on machine learning fundamentals and application in physics and a course on Python programming language.
The deadline for the participation is April 30th and the fee is 250 € before April 10th 2019 (early registration) and 350 € after April 10th 2019 (late registration).

A limited number of grants are available. They cover fee and accommodation expenses only. No support for travel expenses is available. Deadline for application is Febraury 25th.Ph.D. students and young researchers can apply submitting a curriculum vitae, an abstract on their research activity and register to the indico page. Applications by partecipants not registered to the indico page will be discarged. Grant winners will present their research activity in a dedicated session.
Participants are recommended to bring their own laptop. A virtual machine with Linux-CentOS and a ready-to-use Geant4 installation will be provided in the next weeks, together with the installation instructions. The virtual machine can be run by using VirtualBox, a free software available for MacOS, Windows and some flavours of Linux: it can be downloaded from https://www.virtualbox.org.
Students having problems with VirtualBox and/or with the virtual machine will be able to connect, via ssh, to a pre-configured local machine.
GEANT4 virtual machine instructions
Download the compressed virtual machine compatible with VirtualBox. tar.gz version is suggested for Linux and MacOS users, while zip version is suggested for Widnows users. You can check the MD5 checksum.
