BND School, Berlin

10–21 Sept 2018

Belgian Dutch German graduate school in particle physics

The school is intended primarily for experimental high energy physicists preparing a PhD in particle physics, in particular during their first two years. The lectures cover both theoretical and experimental aspects of the field.
The BND graduate school 2018 will take place between 10th (14:00) and 21st (13:00) Sept 2018, in Berlin-Schmoeckwitz. Berlin-Schmöckwitz is a quiet sea-side Youth Hostel, approximately one hour travel to the city centre.
Students are expected to stay the full period of the school. The fee will be 1100 Euro, and covers all expenses: meals, lectures, excursions, and boarding.
