8th International Geant4 School
Geant4 is a software toolkit, written in C++, for simulating tracking of particles in the matter with the Monte Carlo approach.
The software is developed and maintained by an international collaboration of scientists belonging to different institutions. Geant4 can be used for applications in high energy physics, astrophysics, medical physics, particle astrophysics and nuclear physics. The topics of the VIII International Geant4 School will cover both high energy/nuclear physics and medical applications. Lectures will cover all aspects of the toolkit from basic installation through advanced topics and will be interspersed with examples that build a progressively more complex application, extensible to real space and medical use.
A dedicated short C++ course is also included to get familiar participants with the basic elements of the Geant4 programming language.
The school is aimed at PhD students, medical physicists and young researchers working at universities or research institutes. On the last day of the School, students will have the opportunity to test their learning achievements through a written exam. The successful outcome of the test will be reported on a written certificate for those interested. A simple attendance certificate will also be available on request.
Registration is open through the dedicated website.
The course announcement has also been posted in the GEANT4 website.
