2nd JENNIFER Summer School on Particle Physics and Detectors

2nd JENNIFER Summer School on Particle Physics and Detectors

We welcome international undergraduate students for a week of lectures in the pleasant Trieste summertime. Students will be introduced to modern concepts in particle physics and instrumentation, with special focus on the theory of flavor physics and the experimental techniques used in the Belle II, T2K, and Hyper-Kamiokande experiments.

Lecture topics include flavor dynamics, CP violation and flavor mixing in leptons and quarks, rare heavy-flavor decays and study of exotic particles with emphasis on those processes and experimental techniques most promising for revealing non-standard-model physics.

The lectures are scheduled Monday, July 30 morning through Friday, August 3, afternoon.

The social program includes a half-day excursion and a dinner in downtown Trieste.

The school venue and accomodation is the ICTP campus, located closeby the sea in the outskirts of Trieste.

The school will fully cover accomodation and food expenses and will offer limited travel support.

Contact jennifer-school@lists.infn.it for inquiries.

The school is funded by JENNIFER (Japan and Europe Network for Neutrino and Intensity Frontier Experimental Research), an MSCA-RISE project funded by the European Union, under grant n.644294.

We thank INFN Trieste and ICTP for additional support.
