2nd ASTERICS-OBELICS International School

School Programme: The program of the school is devoted to project development for astrophysics & astroparticle. The aim of the school is to provide theoretical and hands-on training on Python development, with the use of C++ for parts of the code which require high performance. Please find more information HERE.

Prerequisites: intermediate level (or more) in Python is required. Python will be the language of reference during the school, with an optional module in C++ at the end of the school (in parallel with machine learning module).

Who is organizing this school: LAPP is the organizing this school in association with OBELICS partners, PRACE. This international school is being organized in the framework of OBELICS  (Observatory E-environments LINked by common ChallengeS) work package of H2020-ASTERICS project.


What is H2020-ASTERICS: the Astronomy ESFRI and Research Infrastructure Cluster, ASTERICS, is a Research Infrastructure funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 framework. ASTERICS aims to address the cross-cutting synergies and common challenges shared by world class Astronomy ESFRI Facilities such as SKACTAKM3NeT, LSST, LOFAR, EUCLID, EGOELT.
