CERN School of Computing 1996 - Last update: 18 JUL 1996

Participation and Language


This year the CERN School of Computing will be combined with the Advanced School of Computing and Imaging (ASCI), and is open to post-graduate students and research workers with a few years' experience in elementary particle physics, in computing, imaging, or in related fields. The number of participants will be of the order of 110; about 70 participants will come from CERN or from laboratories closely associated with CERN (referred to in this document as "non-ASCI" students) and about 40 students from laboratories belonging to ASCI (referred to in this document as "ASCI" students). Most of the ASCI students will participate only in the first week of the School.

Two types of application forms are included with this Bulletin, one for ASCI students and the other for non-ASCI students. Full instructions concerning the completion of one or the other of these application forms and the preparation of a 100-word summary describing the participant's current work, can be found in the sections:

Personal contacts and informal discussions among the participants during leisure time are an important aspect of the School. For this reason, participants are asked to note that they should not be accompanied by family members or friends.


The working language of the School will be English. There will be no simultaneous translation. Participants should therefore have sufficient understanding of English to enable them to benefit from the School.
