About CSC:
Since the early seventies CERN has organized every year the CERN Schools of Computing (CSC) in one of the CERN Member States. CERN Schools of Computing, usually held in August/September, are open to postgraduate students and research workers with a few years of experience in particle physics, in computing or in related fields. The participants come from all around the world and are typically of 15 to 25 different nationalities. A fraction of them come from outside the physics community, generally attracted by the advanced topics that are taught. Attendance is limited to 80 students.
