5th International FAIR School

The fifth edition of the International FAIR School will take place in Castiglione della Pescaia, Italy from September 03-10, 2017. The conference venue is the Riva del Sole.

Scientific Program

The scientific program of the International FAIR School covers all aspects of the FAIR project. The accelerators, the experiments, the theories and the computing frameworks behind.

Devoting a day each on the four scientific pillars of FAIR (APPA, CBM, NUSTAR and PANDA) and two additional days for the accelerator itself and the High Performance Computing facilities gives the participants plenty of time to learn about the FAIR project. Furthermore the school is a great example of the multidisciplinary spirit of FAIR.

In a series of expert lectures and group projects the different scientific parts will be elaborated. There will be plenty of time to get to know other international students working on FAIR related projects. 

The lectures are aimed at early PhD students / advanced master students.
