The 2017 CERN-Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics will be held in San Juan del Rio, Mexico, from 8 to 21 March 2017. The deadline for applications is 18 November. The lectures will cover a broad range of HEP topics at a level suitable for students working for a PhD in experimental particle physics. 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.
Barbara Warmbein | 25 June 2015In spring, 1408 high school students answered a survey done by the Oshu International Relations Association. The survey asked whether they had heard about the ILC, what it meant to them and whether they had any worries or expectations. The results are fascinating and will have some influence on how the project will be communicated to locals if it gets approved.
