The Summer School

The Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques De Cargese (IESC)

The Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques De Cargese (IESC) is an associate partner of the project. The institute is located in Cargese, Corsica, France. The Institute started in the 60's as an independent nonprofit association (1901) in villa Menasina under the direction of Maurice Levy, an eminent theoretical physicist. At that time only few schools of theoretical physics were held at the venue during summer. In 1975 the association was granted by governmental institutions with new facilities allowing a progressive increase in the activity of the Institute. Since 1996 the Institute is affiliated to the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, University of Corsica and University of Nice Sophia Antipolis.

The intensive teaching and learning activity

The project foresees two intensive learning and teaching activities, namely two Summer School which will be held at the IESC, in May 2018 and April 2019. The summer school is essential for the achievement of the project objectives. Students enrolled in each second year of the master degree in physics at the University of Bologna, Clermont-Ferrand, and Dortmund, together with staff from the Universities as well as from the research institutions (INFN, IN2P3, and DESY) will attend an intensive programme. The school is organized with lectures on the most recent results and achivments in the field of the High Energy Physics.

Facilities

The lectures will be given in one of the two auditoria (capacity of 80 and 98 seats). They are equipped with a projector and a laptop computer. Two additional meeting rooms are available with boards and beamers for team-work activities. The restaurant, auditoriums, accommodation rooms are reachable with a pleasant walk through the diversity of the Mediterranean vegetation.

Credits info

6 ECTS
- 40 hours school week
- 24 hours lecture days
- 10 hours preparation of the talk given by the students during the Summer School
- 100 hours preparation (including reading, writing, and team-work)

Six months (October-March) before the actual Summer Course commences, students will participate in the so-called tandem projects, that will be worked on by two students from two different institutions. Pairs of students will be organized into four Working Groups (WGs) with common research activities supervised by researchers and professors from the Consortium:

WG1: Simulation and Numerical Methods
WG2: Precision Measurements and Predictions
WG3: New Physics Phenomena
WG4: Detector Developments and Performances

During the Summer School, the students will present the results of their projects.
A final Certificate of Attendance shall be awarded to students who have attended at least 70% of the School’s Programme (including the preparation phase) and taken part in the final exam.
