Indico page of the last CHIPP Winter School 16-21 January 2022

The Swiss Institute for Particle Physics (CHIPP) hosts an annual winter school based on the activities of the swiss institutes involved in particle and astro-particle physics. The purpose of the school is to offer young physicists an opportunity to learn about recent advances in elementary-particle physics from local and world-leading researchers. The school program includes lectures on accelerator and non-accelerator particle physics (detectors, LHC physics, neutrinos, astrophysics, flavor physics) from an experimental and phenomenological perspective.

Sixth Machine Learning in High Energy Physics Summer School 2020

The Sixth Machine Learning summer school organised by Yandex School of Data Analysis, Laboratory of Methods for Big Data Analysis of National Research University Higher School of Economics, and High Energy Physics Laboratory LPHE at EPFL will be held at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland from the 16th to 30th of July 2020.

The materials of the summer school started to emerge as a free online course.

Currently, there are two sections out of six. More to come soon.
