TSI/GRIDS2018 offers a diversified learning experience, combining lectures from leading experts with hands-on experience with typical detector and instrumentation technology.
August 6-17, 2018.
GRIDS is a new summer school for graduate students and new post-docs in nuclear, particle, and astroparticle physics to get hands-on training with the detector and instrumentation technology used in modern experiments. It is aimed primarily for those students and post-docs with limited experience with experimental hardware.
The school will offer a diversified program, combining plenary lectures on a variety of topics from leading experts with hands-on laboratory experience with typical detector and instrumentation technologies.
Participants will develop a basic understanding of the interactions of particles with matter that are relevant to radiation detecting and and of the physical mechanisms for collecting energy deposited by radiation.
Participants will also develop lab skills to operate commonly-used equipment for radiation detection in a safe and effective manner.
The school is open to National and International graduate students, and new post-docs. Acceptance to the school is limited.
If you are traveling from outside Canada, you may need a visa to enter Canada. Please refer to the Government of Canada site (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.asp) for instructions on how and who needs to apply for a Visitor’s Visa to come to Canada.
