List of lecturers
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.
