III International Geant4 and GPU programing school

The "III International Geant4 and GPU programming school" will be held at Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (LNS) in Catania (Italy) from 9 to 13 November, 2015. 
The School is addressed to PhD students and young researchers, interested on software. 
The school is organised in two didactic units, lectures and practical sessions on the recent software developed in fundamental physics as well as in applied physics. 

The first unit will be based on the GPU, OpenCL and parallel-cloud computing fundamental concepts coupled to an introduction to CUDA. Examples in fluidodynamics, Monte Carlo methods, bioinformatics and economics will be presented. The second unit will cover all aspects of the C++ programming and the Geant4 Monte Carlo toolkit, from the basic installation through advanced topics and will be interspersed with examples that build a progressively more complex application, extensible to real space or medical use.  

Registration is opened (deadline 15th of October), at the page:


Under-graduate university students (maximum number admitted of 15) will be granted a fee waiver.
