The CERN School of Computing addresses topics of importance for the future computing environment for particle physics in the next millenium. The themes are chosen to reflect the exciting developments taking place in computing today. Each theme is presented by speakers with an international reputation for research in the relevant area and is supplemented by computer-based exercises to underline the importance of a "hands-on" approach to computing. The World Wide Web was pioneered by CERN and the continued exploitation of such technologies has been a feature of the Schools. Workstations with Internet access are provided for use by School students in the tutorial classes, along with lecture notes and problem sheets.
The 1997 CERN School of Computing is organised by CERN, in collaboration with the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, and the Charles University, Prague. The School is also sponsored by Computational Physics Group of the European Physical Society.
The programme of the 1997 School is organised round four themes:
