Hadron Collider School - HASCO
The main objectives of the hadron collider physics school (HASCO) are introductory topics in
elementary particle physics, in particular in hadron collider physics as relevant for research at the
Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This includes lectures and tutorials on theoretical foundations of the
Standard Model of elementary particle physics as well as experimental techniques to test it.
Furthermore, a focus is placed on statistical data analysis and an introduction to the software package
ROOT. In addition, students will have the opportunity to discuss state of the art measurements and
results with senior scientists in the field.
The target group are Bachelor, Master and early PhD students, i.e. mainly beginners in the field. The
main activities will be lectures, tutorials, and student seminars. These will be complemented by
excursions, and sport activities.
The learning outcome will be better and more compatible theoretical knowledge of the fundamentals of
elementary particle physics, but more importantly als hands-on experience with widelz used software
tools, statistics data analysis and experimental measurement techniques. The expected outputs are
software programs, group presentations, and short summary reports. The academic achievements will
be credited with ECTS points.
The school will take place at the Georg-August-Universtät Göttingen from 15. - 27. July 2012.
This ERASMUS intensive program is supported by the European Union under the contract DE-2011-ERA/MOBIP-1-29759-3-52
