Hadron Collider School - HASCO 2016
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 are lectures, tutorials, and
student seminars. These are complemented by excursions, and sport activities.
The learning outcome is better and more compatible theoretical knowledge of the fundamentals of elementary particle physics, but more
importantly also hands-on experience with widely used software tools, statistics data analysis and experimental measurement techniques.
The outputs are software programs, group presentations, and short summary reports. The academic achievements will be credited with ECTS
The school will take place at the Georg-August-Universtät Göttingen from 17. - 22. July 2016.
