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
