The CTEQ - MCnet School 2016 
on QCD & Electroweak Phenomenology and Monte Carlo Generators 
will be hosted by DESY in Hamburg, Germany. 

The school is organised by DESY together with the Coordinated Theoretical-Experimental Project on QCD CTEQ and the Monte Carlo Network MCnet.

This is 23rd CTEQ School. Previous Schools have been held in USA, Mexico, Peru, China, Italy, Hungary, Greece, Spain and Scotland.

Participation Fee
The regular registration fee of 650 Euro includes accomodation and meals. 

School Programme
The program includes lectures as well as the hand-on tutorials on the topics of high relevance for modern high-energy physics. In 2016, the main focus of the school will be the physics program of the LHC in Run II:

- Introduction to QCD and electroweak theory

- Introduction to Monte Carlo generators

- Parton Densities: introduction and tutorial

- Monte Carlo tutorials

- Matching and merging higher orders

- Heavy quarks

- Jet physics

- BSM searches at the LHC 

- Dark matter and Astroparticle physics

- Future colliders
