This event is organized by INFN, University of Sassari and by the SNAKE (Sharing Software Knowledge) non-profit organisation. The Seminar offers lectures to Ph.D. students, medical physicists and young researchers working at Universities or Research Institutes.
This year the school includes:
- 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.
- An optional “refresh course of Python” June 4th
- A course on Machine Learning fundamentals
- A cycle of seminars on Machine Learning Applications in different physics fields
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.
Staying at Hotel Porto Conte is mandatory for all the participants. Due to the limited room availability at the Hotel, a maximum number of 45 participants can be admitted. Registration will be closed when the maximum number of participants has been reached and a waiting list will be available.
A limited number of grants are available that will cover the fees and/or the accommodation. No support for travel expenses is available. The deadline for application is March 15th. 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 participants not registered to the Indico page will be discharged. Grant winners will present their research activity in a dedicated session.
