CUPS is a hands on learning experience. It will introduce students, post docs, and new faculty and scientists to our detector and how to care for it, and to help to design the detector for Phase II. In this inaugural edition of CUPs participants will have an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the physics motivation for the HL-LHC and the CMS upgrade. There will be in depth presentations of the Tracker and Muon Systems including the detector technologies (silicon sensors, and gaseous detectors) and the associated electronics and mechanics, an introduction to DAQ and µTCA, and system layout.

Participants will have the opportunity to understand, analyze, and work with:
- Test-beam data (resolution, efficiency, etc.)
- Sensor characterization data (charge collection efficiency, etc.)
- Thermal and mechanical lab measurements on test structures
- A portable telescope for muon detectors
- Tuning operational parameters of gas detectors
- A test DAQ system (including setting it up)
- Design a tracker or muon system

Due to the limited number of places available, there is an application procedure. Application and letter of reference forms, completed by the applicant and recommender respectively, should be sent to cups2014@desy.de by 17 August 2014. Feedback will be provided by 1 September 2014.

The fee for participants is 140 Euros. This covers the school and all its coffee breaks, the reception on Monday and the dinner on Wednesday evening. After successful application, the fee can be paid by wire transfer or at the registration desk at DESY. The school is supported, in part, by the LPC at FNAL and by DESY. Some very limited financial support for Ph.D. students might be available from CMS.
