The 2015 Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics will be held in Ibarra, Ecuador from 4 to 17 March 2015. The lectures will cover a broad range of HEP topics at a level suitable for students working for a PhD in experimental particle physics. Note that financial support may be available for Latin-American students attending the School. Although the School is targeted particularly at students from Latin-American countries, it is open to self-funding students coming from other regions.
Details and application deadline can be found here.
