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.
Leah Hesla | 8 December 2011A new version of linear collider data storage software was released this past autumn to accommodate detector scientists' increasing sophistication in simulating particle events. LCIO (the name comes from 'linear collider input/output') continues to facilitate agreement among the world's linear collider groups with a common event data model and file format for data exchange.

Barbara Warmbein | 4 January 2007A new team of young researchers based at DESY will start building more bridges between theory and experiment and between LHC and ILC in May (next year). Philip Bechtle, currently a post-doc at the BaBar experiment at SLAC, has just received approval and a budget for his "Young Investigators Group" from the Helmholtz Association, the largest scientific organisation in Germany spanning 15 research centres, including DESY. Bechtle, one post doc and four PhD students will delve deep into the subject "Terascale Physics: From Data Taking at LHC to Understanding at ILC."
