CERN School of Computing 1997

Participation and Language


The School is open to postgraduate students and research workers with a few years' experience in elementary particle physics, in computing or in related fields. The number of participants will be of the order of 80, mostly from the CERN Member States or from laboratories closely associated with CERN, but a few may come from countries which are not Member States of CERN.

To apply you will need to complete the available application form and to prepare a 100-word summary describing the your current work.

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.
