The International Doctorate Network in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology (IDPASC) is an interdisciplinary network whose purpose is to create new high-level experts in the fields of Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology.
The school benefits from the financial support of LPNHE, APC and the two Labex Institut Lagrange de Paris (ILP) and UnivEarths.
The IDPASC Network is organizing its annual European school in Particle Physics, Cosmology,
Astroparticle Physics and Astrophysics in Paris from February 8th to 21st, 2015.
The 5th edition of that school welcomes 30 students for a two weeks period and offers a broad scientific education on the topics covered by the network. The students will benefit from classes given by high-level experts in the fields of Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology.
The program is built on 4 main courses :
- Foundations (Quantum Field Theory, Standard Model Physics, BSM Modeling, Supergravity,
- Physics at High Energies (Search for new physics at LHC run II and ILC)
- Physics in the universe (Cosmology, Dark Matter and Dark Energy, Astroparticles)
- Tools (Statistics for Particle Physics and Cosmology, Accelerator Physics, Detection
The school is based on a schedule that offer both theoretical and experimental presentations
together with the special organization of hands on and tutorial classes.
The classes will be organized both at LPNHE at Laboratoire de Physique Nucléaire et des
Hautes Energies (LPNHE) on the campus of Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC).
The students will be hosted at FIAP Jean Monnet (Paris) where they will also have breakfasts
and dinners. Lunches will be taken at UPMC. The total fees for the two weeks are 500 euros
The fee of the school includes the reception, lectures, coffee breaks, and meals (except Saturday-Sunday lunches - free days), hotel lodging (students will be lodged in double rooms). The fee is fixed at 500 €. A limited amount of grants covering part of the fee will be available for IDPASC students. To apply to such a grant please add a short file with your CV and some motivations in the online application form. The grant will not cover travel expenses."
Registration opens Oct. 30th, 2014 and closes on Jan. 15th, 2015.
