Registration process and dates
Registration can be started by filling and submitting the registration form, and is considered complete only after payment is received.
Like all previous courses, the intake is limited (to 25 participants) and acceptance will be on a first come / first served basis. In case the limit on the number of participants is exceeded during the registration stage, a waiting list will be set up.
Payment is to be addressed directly to the Ettore Majorana foundation. Informations will be provided upon registration.
Please make arrangements for payment as soon as you get the respective details and in any case by February 28, 2020. After this date, if any of the accepted registrations are not yet completed by the corresponding fee payment, people from the waiting list will be allowed to proceed in turn through the fee payment to validate their registration.
No particular experience with FLUKA or similar Monte-Carlo packages is required, however basic knowledge of LINUX/UNIX is necessary, as well as reasonably fluent use of a plain-text editor and the ability to navigate through a file tree. For newcomers, not only to FLUKA but also to Linux, we strongly recommend to have a look into a Linux tutorial in order to be able to profit at maximum from the FLUKA course.
The course is heavily based on exercises. Users shall bring their laptop, register as FLUKA users and make sure that their installed copy is in working order before arrival.
