CHIPP Winter School of Particle Physics 2017


08:00 - 18:00



Meeting place

The 2017 CHIPP winter school of particle physics will be in Hotel Rischli in Sörenberg.

The Swiss Institute for Particle Physics (CHIPP) hosts every second year a winter school for PhD students and postdocs 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, future facilities) from an experimental and phenomenological perspective.
