A five-days hands-on Geant4 course organized by Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, Institute of Nuclear Physics PAN and Centro Siciliano di Fisica Nucleare e Struttura della Materia will be held in Krakow (Poland)  on July 1st to 5th, 2019. See flyer of the event!

Geant4 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.

An introductory section will be focused on all main aspects of the C++ basic programming.
The topics of the VII 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. Theoretical lectures will be complemented by hands-on practical sessions, in which a Geant4-based application is progressively built.

The school is targeted 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 open from April 1st. The deadline for registration is June 15th. A maximum number of 50 participants will be admitted.
