Description
Welcome to the 2009 Terascale Fit workshop/school! Our exciting programme consists of: - general introductory lectures on the topic of fitting - several 2-3 hour session blocks on specific fit topics relevant for analyses at the LHC (and elsewhere): Each block consists of a mixture of short (20 min) mini-lectures and extended practical work in groups of ~20 persons. Please take note: - The school fee is 20 Euro to be paid in cash upon arrival: This includes all nutrition costs (cookies, coffee, dinner, etc.) - Accommodation http://guest-services.desy.de/hostel_in_hamburg. Please book yourself.
